This program can be used as a component of a 2-hour class led by a qualified trainer to meet the standards of California AB 1825, AB 2053, and SB 396. The Trainer's Manual, purchased separately, helps facilitators lead a 2-hour training in compliance with these requirements.

Every employee, whether supervisory or not, needs to understand one basic truth: a respectful workplace is more pleasant and more productive for everyone.
Our newest training series brings this message home, showing that bad behavior is not OK—whether it applies to sex, religion, or anything beyond…and whether it actually crosses the line into illegal harassment or not.
In a series of compelling stories, the Employee version of this broadcast-quality film explains the law. But it also captures the imagination and personalizes the value of inclusiveness by showing the potential harm that can be caused by unwelcome conduct.
Examples of bad behavior shown in both versions:
  • Social media allows an embarrassing photo to make the rounds in a hospital.
  • Two guys on a city crew mistreat a “less macho” coworker.
  • Friction in a restaurant kitchen leads to insults for a busser from another country.
  • A religious coworker is excluded on a construction site.
  • A client puts pressure on a company rep for a “quid pro quo” exchange.
  • Two colleagues are offended by the inappropriate dress and flirtatious behavior of their coworkers.
  • Retaliation takes a subtle form but is no less against company policy—and against the law.

Supervisors and managers have the added responsibility of maintaining a harassment-free work environment for everyone. Using the compelling stories from the employee program, the California Manager version explains to supervisors the potential harm that can be caused by unwelcome conduct, and their responsibility for preventing it. They receive specific instruction on steps they should take in meeting these responsibilities, including those set forth by the State of California.

California supervisors will learn how to:

  • display posters and distribute brochures as required by California law
  • comply with California's specific training requirements
  • understand California complaint processes and remedies
  • be aware of what affects their workgroup, including improper use of social media
  • periodically conduct workplace audits, looking for inappropriate items
  • respond to complaints of inappropriate behavior
  • conduct investigations or assist HR/legal, depending on organizational structure
  • inform employees that retaliation will not be tolerated.

This video portrays supervisors who step in early, before problems escalate. And it emphasizes the theme that a respectful workplace is more pleasant and more productive—which, in the end, makes their job easier.

In both versions, our attorney moderators, Stefanie Schaeffer and Greg Dehm, provide commentary on the stories and discuss the issues frankly and openly. California managers are provided with concise direction regarding their responsibilities as supervisors, as well as an explanation of California's specific regulations and requirements.

These new programs meet the highest standards of Kantola Productions’ prizewinning video line. We fully expect viewers will take to heart the positive message of this film—that everyone shares in the responsibility to maintain a civil, respectful workplace. And this makes going to work better for everybody!
