As addressed in our Winter 2017 Update, effective July 1, Labor Code Section 230.1, which addresses time off for employees who are victims of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, now includes a requirement that employers inform employees of their rights under that law—upon hire and request. Employers who provide employee handbooks upon hire containing provisions about the right to take such time off are already complying with this new requirement. Employers who are not providing such written notification may use the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement’s form or should add such a policy to their existing handbook or workplace postings as soon as possible.
