All employers in California must meet workplace-posting obligations, which include printing and posting current mandatory notices where employees can see them.
Employers should be aware of the following two required notices updated and released recently by the Employment Development Department and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing:
Notice to Employees: Employment Development Department - Unemployment Insurance, State Disability Insurance, Paid Family Leave (DE 1857A)
The EDD on July 3, 2018, released this new mandatory posting and stated that while maintaining updated publications is always encouraged, employers can continue to use the previous version of their mandatory employer notice (DE 1857A) until Jan. 1, 2019, at which time all employers must post the updated version. The notice has a revision date of May 2018.
California Law Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment (DFEH-E07P-ENG, formerly DFEH-162)
The following three notices were updated or released since CDA printed the 2017-18 Required Poster Set:
Transgender Rights in the Workplace
California recently passed a new law, SB 396, requiring all California employers to post this notice starting Jan. 1, 2018. The new poster provided by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing must be displayed along with other mandatory workplace notices in a prominent and accessible location in the workplace.
Safety and Health Protection on the Job
The Division of Occupational Safety and Health under the California Department of Industrial Relations, commonly known as Cal/OSHA, has updated the Safety and Health Protection on the Job notice with a print date of October 2017.
Updated Wage Order 4-2001
The California Department of Industrial Relations has updated Wage Order 4-2001 to reflect the 2017 and 2018 increases in the state minimum wage. The DIR amended sections 4(A) and 10(C), which also reflect updated meal and lodging credit amounts. The correct industry wage order bears a revision date of '12/2016,' which is found on the bottom of the cover page of each wage order.
Every employer or practice owner is required to print and post the updated notices over the top of the old notices contained in CDA Practice Support's 2017-18 Required Poster Set and place them in an area frequented by employees where they may be easily read during the workday.
Watch for announcements about the distribution of the 2019-20 Required Poster Sets, including how to request your set. The next poster print cycle is scheduled for early 2019.
