Employers Now Required To Provide Notice About Rights For Victims of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Stalking

 By: Gregory Blueford

Effective immediately, employers with 25 or more employees are required to provide employees upon new hire or upon request by other employees with a written notice about their rights to take protected time off for medical treatment or legal proceedings if they are a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. Under AB 2337, the Labor Commissioner’s office was required to develop a form which set forth the rights and duties of employers and employees under the law for employers to provide to employees by July 1, 2017. Employers were not required to comply with this notice requirement until the Labor Commissioner’s office posted the form on its website. The Labor Commissioner’s office has now completed the form and made that form available (attached here), triggering employers’ requirement to comply with this new law.

COUNSEL TO MANAGEMENT:

Employers with 25 or more employees must comply with this law immediately for new hires and upon request by other employees. Further, while employers are not required to provide the exact form posted by the Labor Commissioner’s office, employers are required to provide a notice that includes the “substantially similar” content as the notice developed by the Labor Commissioner. Use of the Labor Commissioner’s form will avoid any dispute regarding compliance. However, if your Company chooses not to use the Labor Commissioner’s form, the Company should seek legal advice regarding your Company’s proposed notice before it is rolled out. Please contact The Saqui Law Group with any questions regarding your Company’s duties under AB 2337 and other developing legislation.
