The California Legislature passed a bill requiring businesses to train supervisors on sexual harassment, which took effect in 2005. But good ideas don’t always translate easily into reality. The Office of Administrative Law rejected rules proposed by the Fair Employment and Housing Commission on how to regulate the training. Among concerns are that rules do not stipulate who would do the training or how to keep track of it. The commission, which is currently soliciting public opinion, has 120 days to plug the holes or start again. The rules would affect thousands of California businesses with 50 or more employees.
