Have you provided your employees with a Notice to Employee?

The Wage Theft Protection Act of 2011 went into effect on January 1, 2012, and added section 2810.5 to the Labor Code. The act requires that all employers provide each employee with a written notice containing specified information at the time of hire, which includes: the Employer?s legal name; employer?s physical address, mailing address, and telephone number; employee?s rate of pay, overtime rate, what the rate is based upon (hour, shift, day, week, salary, piece rate or commission); whether there is a written agreement, allowances (if claimed as part of minimum wages (such as meals or lodging); regular payday; the Employer?s Workers Compensation policy and Carrier information; Paid sick leave policy (3 days/24 hours or an accrual of not less than one hour for every 30 hours worked); and a requirement to provide a 7 day notice to the employee of any changes in writing or on a timely wage statement. The notice must also be in the language the employer normally uses to communicate employment-related information to the employee. The Labor Commissioner is required to provide Employers with a template that complies with the requirements of the notice, therefore the Labor Commissioner has a ?Notice to Employee? template on its website in several languages. Employers should give a completed copy of this ?Notice to Employee,? which was revised in July 2015 to include the new requires paid sick leave, to every employee. The employer selects the sick leave policy, not the employee. The English version of the form can be found at: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/LC_2810.5_Notice.pdf.
