Labor Commissioner Publishes Sexual Assault/Stalking/Domestic Assault Employee Rights Notice

The Labor Commissioner has published an employee notice that employers are required to provide newly-hired employees and to existing employees upon request.  That notice, required by AB 2337 (Burke) passed by the Legislature in 2016, informs employees of their right to unpaid, job-protected leave for an employee who is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.  An employer of 25 or more employees is prohibited by Labor Section 230.1 from discriminating or retaliating against an employee who uses time off from work because he or she is a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault, or stalking.

AB 2337 directed the Labor Commissioner to create a form for employers to use to make the required to employees; it is available in English and Spanish.
