Is it time to renew your state-mandated AB 1661 training?
 
The League of California Cities, in conjunction with the Institute for Local Government (ILG), is offering a training for Cal Cities members at $50.
 
Friday, April 16, 10 a.m.–12 p.m.
Harassment Prevention Training for Supervisors and Officials (AB 1661 Training)
AB 1661 (Chapter 816, Statutes of 2016) requires local agency officials to receive two hours of sexual harassment prevention training and education within the first six months of taking office and every two years thereafter if the agency provides any type of compensation, salary, or stipend to those officials. This informational and interactive workplace harassment prevention training will teach officials and supervisors how to identify, prevent, and properly respond to workplace harassment, discrimination, retaliation, and abusive conduct in order to avoid personal and agency liability in compliance with AB 1825/2053/1661 and SB 396.
Register for the AB 1661 Training online.
