Understanding California’s SB 476 and Affordable Food Handler Training with ACE Food Handler

Effective January 1, 2024, California’s SB 476 introduces new requirements for food handler training, significantly impacting employers and employees in the food service industry. This legislation mandates that employers cover all costs associated with food handler training and compensate employees for the time spent in training and testing.

Key Provisions of SB 476

  1. Employer-Paid Training: Employers must pay for the food handler training course and any associated costs. This ensures that employees are not burdened with out-of-pocket expenses for mandatory training.California’s SB 476 and Affordable Food Handler Training with ACE Food Handler
  2. Compensation for Training Time: Employees must be compensated for the time spent completing the training and taking the examination. This training must occur during normal work hours, and employees should be relieved of all other duties during this time.
  3. No Employment Condition: Employers cannot condition employment on having a food handler card prior to hiring. This means that new hires must be given the opportunity to obtain their food handler card after starting their job.
