On July 1, 2015, the “Joint Notice for Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave) and Pregnancy Disability Leave” notice becomes effective. California employers with over 50 employees must post this notice in a visibly conspicuous area on company property. Published by the California Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing, this new “Joint Notice” effectively acts as an update to the “Notice B” poster released in November of 2012.

The new “Joint Notice” poster can be obtained for free on the CA DFEH website here.

Employers should also be aware that the FEH Council is currently working on a rulemaking action to discontinue usage of a Joint Notice, meaning that there would eventually be one notice for CFRA Leave and a separate notice for Pregnancy Disability Leave. Until this action is put into effect, employers must keep the above- referenced updated Joint Notice posted.

Action Items:

  1. CA employers with over 50 employees must post the “Joint Notice for Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave) and Pregnancy Disability Leave” in a conspicuous location.
