02 Mar Employers Will Soon be Required to Provide Notice to Employees of Their Employment Rights in the Event They are Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, or Stalking
by Jarred S. Lieber, Esq.
Assembly Bill 2337 will require employers with 25 or more employees to inform employees of their right to take leave if they are the victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking and of their right to be reinstated and reimbursed if they were discharged, demoted, suspended, or in any manner discriminated or retaliated as a result of taking said leave.
The bill will require the Labor Commissioner, on or before July 1, 2017, to develop a form an employer may elect to use to comply with these provisions and to post it on the commissioner’s web site. Employers would not be required to comply with the notice of rights requirement until the commissioner posts the form.
