Employers must give written notice to new employees (and to current employees upon request) explaining the rights of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The law took effect for all California employers with at least 25 employees on July 1.
The California Labor Commission posted a sample form employers may use to comply with this new notice requirement. If an employer chooses not to use the sample form, the substitute notice must be substantially similar in content and clarity. As further described below, the form must include information explaining an employee's right to take time off, right to reasonable accommodations, right to be free from discrimination and retaliation, and right to file a complaint.
Rights for Victims
The mandatory written notice must explain employee rights provided to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking.
