California employment law now requires that employers with 5 or more employees provide one (1) hour of training to employees at least once every two years; and two (2) hours of training to managers within six months of hire or promotion, and every two years thereafter. This training must be completed by January 1, 2020, even if employees were just trained in 2018. A recent professional association survey found that over 80% of Human Resources and Operations Managers are aware of the new training requirements, but have not booked training for their employees. This means that there will likely be a rush to find suitable training options in November or December, and training professionals may already be booked for the end of the year.
To avoid the Fourth Quarter rush, The Grady Firm has a solution. Now through May 20th, The Grady Firm is offering $150 off our full-day, and $50 off our half-day, on-site Sexual Harassment Prevention Training program*.

MANAGER LEADERSHIP TRAINING
We know that it can be difficult to get all of your leaders together in one place. That’s why we offer leadership training for supervisors, which can be scheduled on the same day as your harassment prevention training.
In today’s economy, it is less and less common that employees
come to their job with the training they need to be successful
in their role. Teach your managers how to hire, discipline,
terminate employees, and lead by example. In this hands-on
class, we will practice interviewing a complainant; preparing an
investigation report; addressing job performance issues;
responding to incidents, injuries on the job, and requests for
accommodation; and explaining managers’ legal
This Session is taught on-site in small groups by an experienced
employment attorney and includes real-world examples from
cases that escalated to litigation. We will also review record
keeping practices and ways to anticipate and diffuse employee
problems before they lead to dissatisfied employees and
WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOUR COMPANY UPDATED ITS EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK?
Employee Handbooks should be updated annually to reflect your company’s updated policies, and the twice-annual changes to California employment law. Did you know that there are more than 20 types of leave for which California employees might be eligible? Are they reflected in your current Handbook?
If more than a year has passed since your Handbook was updated, if it was drafted by someone outside of California, or if your company is still operating without a Handbook, now is the time to have a Handbook prepared. Many companies roll out their new Handbook at the time of employee training so that they can discuss the new policies with their employees in person.
The Grady Firm also trains employees on the content of Employee Handbooks so you don’t have to, and because we are able to answer your employees’ tough questions about the laws included in the Handbook, like Paid Sick Leave, Pregnancy Disability Leave, New Parent Leave, and the FMLA/CFRA. Some of these leave types are unique to the cities in which your employees work, such as Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Prevent administrative fines and potential litigation by ensuring that your Employee Handbook complies with state and local law.
We are offering a discount of $300 on the Combination of Sexual Harassment Prevention Training, Manager Training, and Employee Handbook drafting.
