Cal Chamber recently released information on the new required poster for California employers that must be displayed beginning April 1. Employers covered by the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) are required to post this new notice.
Both the CFRA and NPLA provide 12 weeks of unpaid, job protected leave to bond with a newborn or a child placed with the employee for adoption or foster care. The CFRA applies to employers who have 50 or more employees and the NPLA applies to employers who have less than 50 employees but have at least 20 employees.
Employers with 20 to 49 employees will need to post the Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave notice in their workplace and employers with 50 or more employees will need to replace their existing notice with the new version.
As a reminder, employers must display federal, state, and often local notices for employees in a conspicuous place where all employees can view them. Failing to do so can result in penalties. They can often be purchased online, from your local Chamber, or office supply stores.
