Stay in Compliance with New Posting Responsibilities with the Convenient Peel ‘N Post™ Sticker Update
The 2019 California “Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave” Peel ‘N Post™ adheres to existing California All-On-One™ Labor Law Posters and Mobile Poster Pak™ booklets to ensure employers’ workplace posters and booklets are up to date with current posting responsibilities. Our Peel ‘N Post combines two required notices:
- 2019 California “Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave” and
- “Your Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee”
Peel ‘N Posts are formatted to cover the previous versions of these notices contained on California All-On-One Posters and inside Mobile Poster Paks. Simply peel the backing off the Peel ‘N Post sticker and press the adhesive side of the sticker over the outdated notices on your California All-On-One Poster or Mobile Poster Pak. All-On-One Posters and Mobile Poster Pak booklets updated with a Peel ‘N Post are 100% compliant.
What does the new Family Care and Medical Leave Peel ‘N Post cover?
The family care notice provides information on the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the Pregnancy Disability Leave Act. Under CFRA, employers with 50 or more employees are required to provide up to 12 workweeks per year of job-protected family care or medical leave to covered employees. CFRA leave may be used to bond with a newborn or newly-adopted child or foster child, to care for a family member with a serious health condition, and for the employee’s own serious health condition.
The family care notice also provides information about California’s New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) which went into effect on January 1, 2018. The NPLA requires employers with 20-49 employees to provide up to 12 workweeks per year of job-protected parental leave to covered employees to bond with a newborn or newly-adopted child or foster child. Regulations going into effect on April 1, 2019 revise the text of the mandatory family care notice. The revised notice includes information about NPLA eligibility, reasons for leave, duration of leave, reinstatement rights and relationship with other type of leaves.
Who must post the updated Family Leave and Medical Care notice?
The 2019 California Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave Poster must be posted by every employer covered by either CFRA or NPLA. It must be posted prominently where it can be readily seen by employees and applicants for employment (2 CCR § 11095).
If the employer publishes an employee handbook that describes other kinds of personal or disability leaves available to its employees, the employer must include a description of CFRA and/or NPLA leave in the next edition of its handbook it publishes following adoption of the implementing regulations.
