A copy of the new domestic violence notice form, developed by the Labor Commissioner pursuant to AB 2337, is now available on the DLSE website and is linked here; a Spanish version is also available on the website.

Under AB 2337, which became effective on July 1, 2017, California employers with more than 25 employees must provide new hires with this written notice about the rights of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking to take protected time off for medical treatment or legal proceedings.  The notice also contains information on victims’ rights to accommodation and protections against discrimination.

The written notice must be given to all newly hired employees (i.e., as part of a new hire or orientation packet) and to existing employees upon request.
