SB 657 – Permits Employers To Distribute Legally-Required Notices By Email, In Addition To Physical Posting
Existing law requires employers to post a variety of information in the workplace related to employees’ wages, hours, and working conditions. Generally, these notices are designed to alert employees of their rights under federal and state law, including information on how they may go about reporting a workplace violation or filing a complaint with the appropriate state agency, and provide information about the state minimum wage, state laws regarding harassment and discrimination, health and safety rules, and whistle blower protection, among others.
Senate Bill 657 (SB 657) provides when an employer is required to physically post information in the workplace, the employer may email the information to the employee as well as in an attached document in addition to physically posting the information in the workplace. The bill expressly does not alter the employer’s obligation to physically display the required posting.
(SB 657 adds Section 1207 to the Labor Code.)
