Required Sexual Harassment Pamphlet
California employers are required to distribute to employees specific pamphlets to inform them about their rights and protections under various state programs. California Government Code section 12950(b) requires employers to distribute the sexual harassment pamphlet to employees. The pamphlet describes the types of sexual harassment prohibited under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), employers’ responsibilities and information about filing a complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).
Specifically, the pamphlet explains:
- The illegality of sexual harassment.
- The definition of sexual harassment under applicable state and federal law.
- A description of sexual harassment, utilizing examples.
- The internal complaint process of the employer available to the employee.
- The legal remedies and complaint process available through the department.
- Directions on how to contact the department.
- The protection against retaliation for filing a complaint or participating in enforcement procedures.
The law provides that the information required to be distributed to employees must be delivered in a manner that ensures distribution to each employee, such as distributing the pamphlet with an employee’s pay records.
