As required under AB 2337, California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (“DLSE”) has published a new written notice to employees, in English and Spanish, regarding their rights to take protected leave for domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking. AB 2337, signed by Governor Jerry Brown in September 2016, expanded employer notice requirements. Employers must inform each employee of his or her rights through a notice upon hire and at any time upon request. An employer need not use the DLSE’s notice, but any employer’s notice must be “substantially similar in content and clarity” to the agency’s. 

For more on AB 2337, see our blog post, “California Employers Must Provide Written Notice of Right to Take Domestic Violence Leave.” The new notices can be found at the DLSE web page at http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/DLSE-Publications.htm

 California employers must update their new hire procedures to include the new notice.
