As the new year begins, California employers will need to ensure that their mandatory state and federal employment posters are current.

One small but not insignificant change to be aware of is that the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) was renamed to the California Civil Rights Department (CRD) as of July 1, 2022. Mandatory State of California labor posters will need to reflect this revision to be compliant in 2023.

The California Civil Rights Department has also recently issued updates to the following sections of the mandatory workplace posters:

On December 28, 2022, the Agricultural Labor Relations Board (ALRB) issued guidance regarding the implementation of AB 2183 which makes significant changes to the Agricultural Labor Relations Act. Agricultural employers may now register online to enter into a labor peace compact pursuant to new Labor Code section 1156.35. A list of employers who have so registered will be made publicly available on the ALRB’s website.

State and federal law require employers to meet workplace posting obligations. What must be posted depends on many factors including the number of employees, nature and location of the employer’s business, annual dollar volume, whether the employer is a federal contractor, and in certain instances the employer’s industry.

Posting requirements vary by statute which means not all employers will be subject to each posting requirement. Posters must be conspicuously placed in an area of the workplace frequented by employees throughout the workday.
