    A California law requires that companies with five or more employees provide two hours of supervisory training and one hour of staff training every two years on harassment, discrimination, bullying and retaliation. With employees now working remotely, arranging in-person training in the workplace is not feasible. Employment law firm LightGabler offers an online training video course as an alternative solution that meets California harassment and bullying training requirements.
    "In-person training is difficult if not impossible for many companies because COVID-19-related restrictions. Online training is a viable option," says Jonathan Fraser Light, employment attorney at LightGabler and training instructor.
    Employees take a quiz to test their understanding after watching the training course. If they pass the quiz, a certificate of completion is issued for the employees' personnel files. To comply with interactive training requirements, trainees are given the opportunity to email questions to LightGabler for further clarification. 
    Once purchased, businesses have unlimited use of the video for current employees and future hires. The firm recently updated its training module so companies can immediately track who views the video. Prior purchasers will automatically receive the updated platform at no charge.
    The deadline for companies with five or more employees to complete mandatory training is December 31, 2020.
