AB 1825 (now Government Code Section 12950.1) requires that all California employers with 50 or more employees provide at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisors once every two years. New supervisors or newly promoted supervisors must receive the required training within six months of hire or promotion.
This training is mandatory for any supervisor who hires, fires, disciplines, and/or directs the work of one or more employees.
This dynamic workshop is a cost-effective way to provide this mandatory training to supervisors. The training is an interactive and a practical program that is presented in a quiz game show format. All questions are based on case law and hypothetical case scenarios that provide the opportunity for group discussion. Participants will learn the different types of harassment, what their liability could be in a harassment charge, about the company’s liability, what to do if they receive a complaint, and what to do if they feel harassed.

Barbara has more than 20 years of diverse human resources (HR) and management experience that spans start-ups to established organizations. She has extensive hands-on experience leading HR initiatives including policy design, compensation, performance management, recruiting, compliance reporting, HR information system implementations, HR workflow development, training and development, and benefit management.

Barbara has spent six years delivering consulting and outsourced human resources services to successful businesses throughout the Bay Area in various industries including high tech, insurance agencies, law firms, medical, marketing, and finance.
Barbara holds a bachelor’s degree in law from Northwestern California University, is certified as a Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR) and is a Certified Group Benefits Associate through the Certified Employee Benefit Specialist program.

WHAT’S NEW FOR 2016?

Come and learn what you need to know to stay in compliance and out of court in 2016!

Employers must stay current on the new employment law developments which were implemented in 2015 and be ready for the changes that will take effect in 2016. The updated laws can impact wage and hour requirements, proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), equal pay, leave of absence rights, termination rights, and recordkeeping obligations. Preparation and knowledge are the keys to avoid lawsuits.
Please join the Contra Costa County EAC for a presentation by Marc L. Jacuzzi, Esq., who will discuss these important new developments.

Speaker: Marc Jacuzzi

Mr. Jacuzzi has broad experience in employment law matters. He has represented numerous employers in civil rights actions, trade secret misappropriation claims, wage claims, wrongful termination claims, unfair business practices claims (Section 17200), non-competition claims (Section 16600), contract disputes, and various tort claims filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE), and various other state agencies in both state and federal courts.
Mr. Jacuzzi’s practice also involves employment law counseling. He regularly advises clients in all aspects of the employer/employee relationship including hiring and termination, wage and hour requirements, employee classification, civil rights/discrimination issues, commission plans, employment contracts, employee handbooks and policies, confidential information agreements, reductions in force, leaves of absence, employment audits, merger and acquisition employment issues, violence in the workplace, and international employment law topics.
