The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has issued a new pregnancy rights poster for employers to use in satisfying posting requirements under California’s Pregnancy Disability Leave law.
The new poster has the same title, “Your Rights and Obligations as a Pregnant Employee” as the previous pregnancy rights poster known as Notice A.
As previously announced in our March 24, 2016, Spotlight article, Western Growers and industry partners have filed an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of provisions of AB 1513 that effectively carves-out two growers from taking advantage of the bill’s safe harbor provisions.
Today, Western Growers and the California Fresh Fruit Association (CFFA) issued a joint press release announcing the organizations will be filing an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit challenging provisions of AB 1513, a bill signed into last year law. That law provides a safe harbor from class action lawsuits to employers who make back payments to piece-rate employees for rest periods and other “nonproductive time.”
