Farm managers and other industry supervisors on April 16 in Santa Rosa can receive state-mandated training on sexual harassment avoidance.

The Sonoma County Farm Bureau is offering training at its office, 970 Piner Road. The classes fulfill a state law that requires supervisors to have two hours of training in sexual harassment every two years.

Classes will deal with verbal, visual and physical forms of sexual harassment. Supervisors will be instructed on how to deal with complaints and to correct problems.

Classes will be offered from 8 to 10 a.m. in Spanish and 1 to 3 p.m. in English. The cost is $65 for farm bureau members and $95 for non-members. For registration and further information, contact Anita Hawkins, 544-5575, or
