Civil Rights Department Updates Workplace Discrimination & Harassment Poster

All California employers are required to display certain posters and information regarding the law on harassment, discrimination, and other workplace topics.

The poster entitled “California Law Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment” has been recently updated by the California Civil Rights Department (formerly the Dept. of Fair Employment and Housing or DFEH). The updated version of this poster includes information about some of the recent changes to the law including Bereavement Leave, Leave for Reproduction Loss and as to an applicant or employee’s use of cannabis off duty and outside the workplace.

This poster, along with all other required posters, must be displayed in a conspicuous place where employees can easily view the information.  If employees work entirely remotely, the posters can be communicated electronically to the employees.

If 10% or more of an employer’s workforce at any facility or establishment speaks a language other than English, the employer must also display this poster in that language (or languages).

The updated “California Law Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment” poster and other postings required by the Civil Rights Department are available on their website, including translated versions. (English) (Spanish)

Employers should ensure that the forms and posters being provided to employees, and which are displayed in the workplace are the most current.
