Special Situations: Do I need to take this course?

Review the full list of those individuals required to complete this course.

Do I need to take supervisor (AB1825) training if:

  1. I am not a supervisor
  2. I completed the training program in 2018
  3. I'm on leave
  4. I'm Emeritus faculty
  5. I trained this year at another California institution
  6. I recently completed the course for Academic Staff
  7. I recently attended classroom training for new employees
  8. I trained this year at the VA Hospital
  9. I recently attended Respectful Workplace training (SoM)
  10. I will be working at Stanford for less than 6 months
  11. I will retire before my training due date
  12. I work less than full-time

 

1. I am not a supervisor

You may have been identified as a supervisor based on your job code, or if you are listed in the PeopleSoft "Reports To" field as a supervisor.  If so, you must complete this training requirement whether or not you supervise.

 

2. I completed the training program in 2018

All Stanford faculty and supervisory staff are required to train in odd-numbered years. If you became a supervisor at Stanford in 2018, you needed to complete this training within 30 days to comply with state law. Unfortunately, that does not exempt you from the university-wide training requirement in 2019. After 2019 you will be on the two-year repeat cycle and will not have to train again until 2021.

 

3. I'm on leave

You do not need to train while you are on sabbatical or another type of leave. You will be required to complete the training within 30 days of returning to work, or by the due date specified on your STARS email notification.

 

4. I'm Emeritus faculty

Emeritus faculty must complete AB1825 training if they are recalled to active duty, even if they work less than full time.

 

5. I trained this year at another California institution

Faculty and supervisors will not receive credit at Stanford for a comparable course completed for another employer. Much of the course content is specific to Stanford, and is not covered in non-Stanford courses that meet the general requirements of AB1825. For example, Stanford’s course meets federal guidelines concerning sexual violence that impacts the student community.

 

6. I recently completed the course for Academic Staff

If you are faculty or if you supervise staff, you are required to take a different course (SHP-1002). Please contact the Sexual Harassment Policy Office: shpo-training@stanford.edu or 725-0646, to consult.

 

7. I recently attended classroom training for new employees

These sexual harassment briefings are for new non-teaching, non-supervisory staff. They do not satisfy California's AB1825 requirement for supervisors. If you have been identified as a supervisor, you must comply with the AB1825 training requirement for supervisors.

 

8. I trained this year at the VA Hospital

Unfortunately, VA harassment prevention training does not comply with California law regarding sexual harassment prevention training. Stanford faculty who have appointments at the VA must complete Stanford’s supervisor training program to receive credit under the state mandate.

 

9. I recently attended Respectful Workplace training (SoM)

The SoM Respectful Workplace Workshop may have content related to this program, but still does not exempt you from this requirement as it does not specifically comply with the AB1825 state training mandate.

 

10. I will be working at Stanford temporarily

Even if you are a temporary employee, if you have been identified as a supervisor you still must complete this training program. Since this is a requirement related to your job responsibilities, you are to be paid for the time you spend completing this training. Please contact shpo-training@stanford.edu if you have questions.

 

11. I will retire before my training due date

Please contact the Sexual Harassment Policy Office: shpo-training@stanford.edu or 725-0646.

 

12. I work less than full-time

Even if you work less than full time, you need to take the AB1825 harassment prevention training course if you supervise.
