Two of California's required postings have new mandatory updates.
California's Pregnancy Disability Leave Notice ("Your Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee") has been updated. The mandatory update contains information about the New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) which applies to employers with 20 to 49 employees and provides up to 12 workweeks of job-protected baby bonding leave in a 12-month period. The update was a result of recent regulations from the California Fair Employment and Housing Council. This is the second poster update this year as a result of the regulations.
All employers with five or more employees must post this notice which contains information on PDL, NPLA, and CFRA and how these leaves interact. If you were previously posting the old version of this notice, replace it with the August version. If you have more than five employees and never posted this notice before, begin posting it now.
Cal/OSHA's Workplace Safety Notice ("Safety and Health Protection on the Job") has also been revised. The mandatory update includes new information for district and regional office addresses.
All employers are required to post the Cal/OSHA notice. If you were previously posting the old version of this notice, replace it with the August version.
You may download these free updates (PDL and Cal/OSHA) from our website under "Additional Resources." Make sure to post them in a conspicuous location where employees can easily see them. (Next to your other labor law posters is best!)
CEA's 2019 California/Federal Employment Law Paper Poster will be available soon with these recent updates if you need to purchase a new poster for your location(s). The laminated poster has been updated already.
