Abusive Conduct in California Video
This short, hard-hitting video about workplace bullying prevention covers the topics needed to comply with California’s new AB 2053 workplace abusive conduct law.
California law now requires workplace abuse training to be included as part of harassment training. If you have over 50 employees, you need to make sure your organization is covered.
Workplace bullying is not a new problem, but only just recently has the plague of bullying at work been quantified. Conservative estimates put the loss in productivity at over a billion dollars in the USA alone. A decline in employee morale, loss of productivity, employee turnover, health problems and loss in organizational reputation are just a few of the problems that the bullying causes.
This brand-new AB2053 course covers every aspect of abusive conduct in the workplace.

This new course will leave no doubt what behaviors are unacceptable in the workplace. Organizations that eliminate toxic behaviors like abusive contact are more likely to be financially successful than those who do not. Additionally, bully-free organizations are less likely to suffer from workplace violence incidents and less likely to have employees suffer from health issues such as stress that keep them from their jobs.
