On-site client training is another way our attorneys educate clients on best practices, reduce their liability and risk of litigation, and keep them up-to-date on laws that may affect them.
Ethics (AB 1234) and sexual harassment prevention (AB 1825) are two training topics that Meyers Nave conducts on a regular basis. Detailed information about these two trainings is below. In addition, our practice groups also offer training specific to their areas of law.
For more information on Meyers Nave Training Services or to schedule a training, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AB 1234 Ethics Training
On October 7, 2005, the Governor signed Assembly Bill No. 1234. This law requires that all local agencies that provide compensation, salary, or stipend to, or reimburses the expenses of, members of a legislative body must provide ethics training to local agency officials by January 1, 2007, and every two years thereafter.
As such, Meyers Nave provides a dynamic 2 hour presentation which covers:
- Responsibilities of office
- Proper use and safeguarding of agency property and resources
- Conflict of interest
- Gift of public funds
- Financial interest disclosure
- Due process requirements
- Incompatible offices
- Brown Act
AB 1825 Compliance Training
This new law, effective January 1, 2005, requires that all supervisory employees employed as of July 1, 2005 receive training in sexual harassment prevention. All new supervisory employees must receive the training within six (6) months of assuming their new supervisory duties.
Meyers Nave offers training that fully complies with the requirements of AB 1825. In addition, we also provide a train-the-trainer component for employers who want to handle training of future supervisors internally.
Our standard training lasts two (2) hours, plus additional time for questions. It is designed to be entertaining, interactive and informative. It includes use of the following materials:
- PowerPoint presentation
- Written quiz and answer key
- Incorporation of the employer’s policies and procedures related to harassment and discrimination
- Individual acknowledgment of attendance at the training session
- Sign-in sheets
- Evaluation forms
The train-the-trainer portion requires that all potential trainers attend the two (2) hour session. Following the session they will be provided with all the above listed materials on a diskette, and can use them as frequently as desired. In addition, we will provide a written outline so the trainers can make sure that all important materials are covered when they do future training sessions. We will keep the PowerPoint updated for the remainder of the calendar year, so if there are any changes to the law, they can be incorporated into future PowerPoint presentations.
