DCA Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

All Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) employees are required to receive biennial Sexual Harassment Prevention (SHP) training in accordance with the DCA SHP Policy (EEO 12-01) and to ensure compliance with Assembly Bill (AB) 1825 (Reyes, Chapter 933, Statutes of 2004). The training is mandatory for Rank and File employees, Temporary employees (Retired Annuitants, Proctors, Seasonal, and Student Assistants), Managers, Supervisors, Board, and Commission Members.

In accordance with CA Code of Regulations, §7288.0 Sexual Harassment Training and Education, DCA has chosen the "mandatory training year" method to track SHP training compliance. This means that all DCA employees are required to coordinate their training to fit "compliance years," which for DCA are the odd numbered years.

Since 2015 is a compliance year, all DCA employees and Board and Committee members are required to complete the training within this year. There are several ways that you can fulfill this training requirement:

  1. Completion of the below DCA Sexual Harassment Prevention tutorial fulfills this training requirement.
  2. If you would prefer to attend a live webinar to fulfill this training requirement you may do so by registering and attending one the sexual harassment prevention webinars offered by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Employees are encouraged to check the DFEH website at http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/Webinars.htm for course availability.
  3. A list of SHP training providers is included below. Please follow the registration instructions for each provider. For those that charge a fee, a fully executed service contract will need to be in place prior to an employee attending training. Please contact John Steele, BSO Non-IT Contracts Liaison at (916) 574-7294 for assistance with contract development.

The DCA provides reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities to participate in training. Please contact SOLID at (916) 574-8316 or solid@dca.ca.gov if you would like to request a reasonable accommodation to allow you to participate in the below tutorial.
