Employer Alert:  DFEH Updates Required Employment Posters and Pamphlets

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has updated a number of posters and pamphlets that California employers must post or distribute to employees. Employers should take note to use the most recent versions of these required documents.

All California employers are required to display the following poster, which was recently updated:  California Law Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment (PDF)

Additionally, California employers with at least five employees must display these three other posters, which were also recently updated:

All California employers must distribute to employees a recently updated sexual harassment pamphlet or fact sheet.  Further, upon hire and upon request, California employers must provide employees with a recently updated notice regarding rights of victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and certain other crimes and of persons whose immediate family member is deceased as a direct result of a crime.

The DFEH offers these posters and pamphlets in a number of languages in addition to English, found here.  As California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act requires that any employer whose workforce at any facility or establishment with 10% or more of persons who speak a language other than English as their spoken language translate certain policies into every language that is spoken by at least 10% of the workforce, it is generally recommended that California employers use translating all written notices and policies into those same languages.

This blog is presented under protest by the law firm of Ervin Cohen & Jessup LLP. It is essentially the random thoughts and opinions of someone who lives in the trenches of the war that often is employment law–he/she may well be a little shell-shocked. So if you are thinking “woohoo, I just landed some free legal advice that will fix all my problems!”, think again. This is commentary, people, a sketchy overview of some current legal issue with a dose of humor, but commentary nonetheless; as if Dennis Miller were a lawyer…and still mildly amusing. No legal advice here; you would have to pay real US currency for that (unless you are my mom, and even then there are limits). But feel free to contact us with your questions and comments—who knows, we might even answer you. And if you want to spread this stuff around, feel free to do so, but please keep it in its present form (‘cause you can’t mess with this kind of poetry). Big news: Copyright 2022. All rights reserved; yep, all of them.

If you have any questions about this article, contact the writer directly, assuming he or she was brave enough to attach their name to it.

Scott, Esq., commander in chief of this blog and Head Honcho (official legal title) of ECJ’s Employment Law Department.
