Employer Alert: DFEH Updates Required Employment Posters and Brochures | Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP
The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has updated a number of posters and brochures for California employers to display or distribute to employees. Employers should note to use the most recent versions of these required documents.
All California employers are required to post the following, recently updated poster: California Law Prohibits Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace (PDF)
Additionally, California employers with five or more employees must post these three other posters, which were also recently updated:
All California Employers Must Distribute Newly Updated Sexual Harassment to Employees brochure Where fact sheet. Additionally, upon hiring and upon request, California employers must provide employees with a to remark concerning the rights of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, harassment and certain other crimes and of persons whose immediate family member has died as a direct result of a crime.
The DFEH offers these posters and brochures in several languages in addition to English, found here. As California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act requires any employer whose workforce in a facility or establishment with 10% or more people who speak a language other than English as their spoken language to translate certain policies in each language spoken by at least 10% of the workforce, it is generally recommended that California employers translate all notices and policies written in those same languages.
