The California Fair Employment and Housing Council has adopted amendments to the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) regulation that will take effect on April 1, 2016. Employers with five or more employees are required to post the amended notice on its premises, in conspicuous places where employees are employed, which provides information on the Act’s provisions and information on how to contact the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) to file a complaint and learn more about rights and obligations under the Act.
Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) – “Your Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee”: PDL applies to employers with five or more employees and provides up to four months of protected leave.
Upon its release, revisions to the PDL notice (formally DFEH’s “Notice A”) are likely to include, but will not be limited to information on:
• Requirements to advance notice for foreseeable events; and
• Additional rights under California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
Why do I need Labor Law posters?
Labor Law postings are required by law. All employers with at least one employee are required to post the most up-to-date State and Federal labor law postings. To minimize risk of non-compliance, businesses are responsible for monitoring the current Federal and State specific labor law changes. Some poster providers offer a monitoring service that will automatically notify you of any relevant and mandatory changes and offer the most up-to-date posting for display.
Avoiding Fines & Penalties
It is the responsibility of all employers to remain compliant with labor law postings by displaying the latest, most up-to-date notices, to prevent penalties and risks of non-compliance. Failure to post up-to-date labor law postings can result in fines up to $17,000 per customer location (29 USC Sec. 666(i) and 29 USC Sec. 2005).
