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 2014
  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 had 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

If you are not currently directing or evaluating the work of other employees (including supervising part-time, temp, casual or student employees), ask your Human Resources Office or Faculty Affairs Officer or Administrator to confirm that fact with the Sexual Harassment Policy Office: shpo-training@stanford.edu or 725-0646.

 

2. I completed the training program in 2014

All Stanford faculty and supervisory staff are required to train in the odd-numbered years. If you became a supervisor at Stanford in 2014, you needed to complete training within 6 months to comply with state law. Unfortunately that does not exempt you from the university-wide training requirement in 2015. However, after 2015 you will be on the two-year repeat cycle and will not have to train again until 2017.

 

3. I'm on leave

You do not need to train while you are on a sabbatical or other type of leave. The SHPO should learn about your leave from your tracking manager, but you may also let us know. After you return to work, you must complete the training within 3 months. You will receive an email with registration information.

 

4. I'm Emeritus faculty

Emeritus faculty must complete AB 1825 training if recalled to active duty.

 

5. I trained this year at another California institution

If you have completed comparable training from another California employer within the current calendar year, you may be eligible to receive credit at Stanford. Certain requirements must be met: Read more

 

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-0001). 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-supervisory staff. They do not satisfy California's AB 1825 requirement for supervisors. If you have been identified as a supervisor by your department or HR/FAA, you must comply with this AB1825 training requirement for supervisors.

 

8. I trained this year at the VA Hospital

Unfortunately, the VA harassment 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 had Respectful Workplace training (SoM)

You do need to complete the 2-hour sexual harassment training to comply with the law (AB1825), because the Respectful Workplace Training does not meet the state training requirement.

 

10. I will be working at Stanford for less than 6 months

Typically, if you’re appointed for less than six months you are exempt from this training requirement. However, you do need to complete the training if your appointment is ongoing and you return to Stanford for part of every year.

 

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, if you supervise you do need to take the supervisor course (AB1825).
