Something to be thankful for - a 2018 required posting available BEFORE January 1! The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has issued the mandatory workplace notice "Transgender Rights in the Workplace" in accordance with SB 396. This poster must be posted in a prominent and accessible location, along with other mandatory workplace notices, by January 1, 2018. You may download this poster on our web site under "Additional Resources." Due to the size of this new posting, it will not be included in our all-in-one posters. Speaking of which, now is the time to order your 2018 California/Federal Labor Law Poster!
According to the DFEH, the poster addresses key topics such as the right of employees to use restrooms, locker rooms, and other similar facilities corresponding to their gender identity and to dress in accord with their gender identity and expression. “We expect this posting requirement to increase understanding of the law and assist California employers in providing safe and inclusive work environments,” said Kevin Kish, Director of DFEH. The poster also follows regulations developed by the Fair Employment and Housing Council that went into effect in July 2017.
Don't forget, SB 396 also requires mandatory sexual harassment prevention to include a component regarding gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. Schedule your training today!
