California: Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Prevention

We have added the California: Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Prevention policy and Acknowledgement Receipt to the California Handbook Builder. This policy replaces both the Non-Harassment and Sexual Harassment policies for California and it sets forth the Company's commitment to a harassment-free workplace based on new regulations effective on 4/1/2016 for California employers. It is mandatory to include this in your Handbook.

Please answer the interview questions that precede the policy.

In addition, you must accept the new Receipt of California: Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Prevention and ask employees to sign and return the Receipt. This Receipt is vital because the employees' signature is an acknowledgment of their receipt of the California: Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation Prevention policy, their obligation to comply with its terms and their acknowledgment of the reporting mechanisms the company provides for policy violations. Procedures should be implemented to ensure that this and all other acknowledgments are collected and retained in employees' personnel files.
