TUESDAY, JUNE 18, 2019 PHYSICIANS: There is an important Compliance Alert worthy of your attention. Effective January 1, 2019, a new law requires California employers with 5 or more employees (located anywhere) to provide at least one hour of sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training to all non-supervisory employees and two hours of such training to California supervisors (and to any out-of-state supervisors of California employees). All must be trained in the 2019 calendar year , before January 1, 2020. For more information and to help address the new harassment training requirements, please CLICK HERE . On a lighter subject, now is your last chance to purchase tickets for the Champions for Health Soirée , ‘Awakening Wellness’ at 5pm on June 30th in the Japanese Friendship Garden Lower Pavilion in Balboa Park. Champions serves as SDCMS’ community foundation and provides badly needed health services to underserved and minority populations throughout San Diego County. Your support is needed and deserved.
