Life Theatre Services will be providing sexual harassment prevention training for staff and faculty
Live Theater Option for Completing Mandatory Sexual Harassment Prevention TrainingThe University has contracted with Life Theatre Services to provide an entertaining and informative alternative to the online option for completing California's required sexual harassment prevention training.
California law AB1825 mandates that all supervisors receive two hours of harassment prevention training at least every two years. The year 2012 is a University training year for all faculty and supervisors. Under California's broad legal definition of 'supervisor', all faculty members qualify as supervisors, as well as all staff members who supervise other employees, even if they supervise student or temporary workers. The University cannot exempt any supervisors - faculty or staff - from this legal obligation.
The deadline for completing this training requirement is December 31, 2012.
Live Theatre Option: This year, employees have the opportunity to register for an exhilarating, educational and fun alternative to online sexual harassment prevention training. The Emmy Award-winning Life Theatre Services has been presenting these programs to faculty and staff at Stanford University and every University of California campus for the past six years by using professional actors to dramatize real life scenarios that illustrate both overt and subtle forms of sexual harassment.
To sign up:
Stockton: Interactive theatrical presentations are scheduled for October 8 from 11 am -1 pm and 2 pm - 4 pm; and October 9 from 9 am - 11 am and Noon - 2 pm in Grace Covell Hall. Register online in the Faculty/Staff Development Training registration channel in InsidePacific.
(Life Theatre presentations have already been offered at Pacific McGeorge School of Law and Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry)
If you are unable to attend any of the Life Theatre Services presentations, you may still satisfy the training requirement through the University's two-hour interactive online course for supervisors: Preventing Harassment in the Workplace and on Campus. The course can be completed from any computer and it allows you to stop and start at any time at your convenience.
