Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Local Agency Officials (AB 1661)
On July 15, 2020, John Kennedy and Allison Callaghan presented “Sexual Harassment Prevention Training for Local Agency Officials (AB 1661)” for the State Association of County Retirement Systems (SACRS). This interactive training session met the requirements under AB 1661, in which local agency officials must receive at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention and education training within the first six months of taking office or commencing employment and every two years thereafter if the local agency provides any type of compensation, salary or stipend to its officials. The session also met the requirements under AB 1825, in which employees who perform supervisory functions must receive sexual harassment prevention training. Attendees learned how to prevent and effectively respond to complaints of sexual harassment.
The State Association of County Retirement Systems' (SACRS) interactive Summer Webinar Series allowed for its diverse membership base to learn and collaborate, while providing a platform for comprehensive analysis of the most significant developments affecting the industry.
