Webinar to Guide Employers Through California’s New Workplace Violence Law

Non-health care employers in California must create and implement a workplace violence prevention program by July 1, 2024.

The new regulation, passed by the Legislature last year as SB 553 (Cortese; D-San Jose), requires employers to develop training for and maintain documentation of workplace violence incidents.

In a live webinar on Thursday, May 16, 2024, CalChamber’s employment law experts will provide guidance on the new law, examining real-life scenarios designed to help employers fulfill the practical requirements of completing their workplace violence prevention program. The webinar will help attendees:

  • Understand the law’s requirements and each employee’s role under the law;
  • Obtain full organizational support in identifying and mitigating workplace violence hazards;
  • Design a fully compliant training program specific to your workplace violence prevention plan;
  • Create procedures for the use of on-site personnel and law enforcement to respond to workplace violence incidents; and
  • Implement a post-incident response plan, including completing the mandated incident log, investigation and mitigation of future incidents.

As an added bonus, webinar attendees will receive the CalChamber Workplace Violence Prevention Toolkit to further assist them in meeting these new requirements.
