The Workplace Violence Prevention Plan and Training are Effective THIS July 1?!

As a result of Senate Bill 553 (SB 553), all employers, including charter schools, that fall within the scope of California Labor Code (LC) 6401.7 and LC 6401.9, are required to establish, implement, and maintain an effective, written Workplace Violence Prevention Plan (WVPP). California's new law requiring a WVPP-related training, record keeping, and reporting protocol for nearly all employers, is in effect now, with a compliance deadline of July 1, 2024. By July 1, these employers, including charter schools, are required to:

  • develop and implement a workplace violence prevention plan containing specified information
  • train all staff on initial plan
