Fair employment posters

The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has been busy in 2017, releasing updated posters covering Employment Discrimination, Family Care and Medical Leave (CFRA Leave), Pregnancy Disability Leave, Sexual Harassment, Pregnancy Discrimination, and Workplace Harassment. DFEH has organized the posters on their website, categorized by the poster/brochure audience or intent (i.e. those that are required versus those designed for employment, housing, business establishments, or hate/violence).

Required Posters  

DFEH has placed all required posters and brochures on a single webpage in multiple languages. Even with the numerous updates, DFEH points out the absence of changes in some posting obligations. Employers may post any version of the Workplace Discrimination poster (titled: California Law Prohibits Workplace Discrimination and Harassment / DFEH-E07P-ENG / formerly DFEH-162) from December 2014 to the present. Also, employers may post any version of the CFRA/Pregnancy Disability Leave notice (DFEH-100-21) from July 2015 to the present. Lastly, employers may post any version of the Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee notice (DFEH-100-20) from April 2016 to the present.

All California employers are required to display the following poster:

Most California employers also must display two other posters:

Rules for Posting Required Posters

Per the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, required posters must be conspicuously displayed where they can be easily seen and read by all employees and job applicants and the text has to be large and legible enough to be easily read when posted. Posters must be displayed at the following places:

  • At each location where a company has employees – offices, stores, warehouses, branches, etc.
  • At employment agencies, hiring offices and union halls.
  • On computers as long as the posters are posted electronically in a conspicuous place where employees will tend to see it.

Language Translation

If 10 percent or more of a company's workforce speaks a language other than English, the posters must also be displayed in that language (or languages). As mentioned above, DFEH provides translated posters in several languages, available in the resources section of their website. According to their website, DFEH will work with an employer if other translations are needed.

California Employment Law and Employment Posters

Aside from required posters, DFEH provides employment related posters, brochures and fact sheets. Employers should provide all new employees with the most up-to-date brochure or poster upon hire, and current employees should also be provided the newly issued brochure or poster.
