Letter From Chief of Staff: Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

In order to ensure a safe and supportive workplace, the Medical Staff has partnered with Cedars-Sinai to implement a new online sexual harassment prevention training program.

The new program offers a smoother experience and more relevant content on both sexual harassment and civility.

As a reminder, the Medical Staff Rules and Regulations require a two-hour training which must be completed at initial appointment and reappointment. The 45-minute "refresher" course will no longer be available.

Physicians and Allied Health Care Professionals who supervise five or more employees should note that the new training also satisfies a new state law, SB 1343, which becomes effective January 1, 2020.

We hope this update will be beneficial to you all, and we thank you for your continued support and commitment to helping Cedars-Sinai provide a safe workplace environment.

Clement C. Yang, MD
Chief of Staff
