California’s paid sick leave law contains a new posting requirement, effective January 1, 2015.
Although employers must begin providing the paid sick leave benefit beginning July 1, 2015, they must comply with the posting requirement effective January 1, 2015.
The legislation (AB 1522) specifically required the Labor Commissioner to create the mandatory poster for employers to use. Employers are required by law to display the mandatory poster in a conspicuous location. The Labor Commissioner recently released the new paid sick leave poster which California employers should be prepared to post on January 1, 2015.
The Labor Commissioner created a landing page with information regarding paid sick leave.
An employer who willfully violates the posting requirement can be subject to a civil penalty of up to $100 for each offense.
The California Chamber of Commerce 2015 California and Federal Employment Notices Poster and 2015 Required Notices Kit (with all-in-one poster) contain the new paid sick leave poster prepared by the California Labor Commissioner.
