Respect and Esteem Training

The Office of Human Resources at Azusa Pacific University, in compliance with AB 1825 (sexual harassment training law codified at Cal. Lab. Code § 12950.1), and in order to provide a God-honoring working environment that encourages respect and esteem for each member of the community, requires Respect and Esteem training at least every two years (within 30 days of hire and during each official training year–2014, 2016, 2018 etc.) for ALL faculty and staff employees, including full-time, part-time, and temporary employees at all APU locations. This policy is consistent with valuing the safety and comfort of each employee and striving to create respectful, productive workplace dynamics for all offices and departments.

Please help us maintain compliance with the law and protect one another by cooperating in a timely manner with these training mandates.
