Emtrain has updated the California versions of Preventing Workplace Harassment to reflect the CROWN Act (SB188) which took effect on January 1, 2020. Additionally, updates were made to the New York version of Preventing Workplace Harassment to reflect AB A07797 which took effect immediately upon signing.
The CA & NY bills (and others that may follow) seek to prevent discrimination against employees over their natural hairstyles.
As a result, we have made small edits to the information presented for CA & NY in the Map of Protected Characteristics by US State. Additionally, edits were made to the information presented about Race and Color as one of the commonly protected characteristics. These edits were also applied to the Global course to that companies with employees located internationally may be sensitive to CA/NY laws on this matter.
- There is no need to adjust the training assignments, the edits have been made to current live training.
- SCORM Files are already automatically up to date.
