California Labor Law Poster Update

All businesses within the State of California must display the new Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave notice along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our California & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.

Order the California Labor Law Poster to immediately include this required update.
