CA Department Of Fair Employment And Housing Releases New, Required Posters For Employers
In December 2019, the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) released new, required posters, which became effective on January 1, 2020, including:
Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave) and Pregnancy Disability Leave
Sexual Harassment Prevention: The Facts about Sexual Harassment
Transgender Rights in the Workplace
Your Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee
DFEH states that the revisions made to the Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave) and Pregnancy Disability Leave poster were merely a design change, which “does not change the posting obligation.” The DFEH notes that employers may post any version of the Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave) and Pregnancy Disability Leave poster from March 2019 to the present.
As a reminder, employers must display all DFEH required posters conspicuously where all employees and job applicants can easily see and read them. Posters must be displayed (1) at each location where an employer has employees; (2) at employment agencies, hiring offices, and union halls; and (3) on computers as long as the posters are posted electronically in a conspicuous place where employees will tend to see it. The text of the displayed posters must be large and legible enough for employees and job applicants to read them. In addition to displaying required posters in English, the employer must also display the poster in any other language spoken by 10 percent or more of the employer’s workforce.
The new, required posters are located on the DFEH website, which is available here: https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/resources-2/posters-and-brochures-and-fact-sheets/poster-and-brochure-tab-list/?target=Required%20Materials
