e-Alert: California to Allow Electronic Distribution of Workplace Notices

By August 16, 2021No Comments


California has amended its distribution of employee rights notices to be more conducive with a growing remote workforce.


Effective January 1, 2022, California will allow employers to distribute employee labor law notices electronically. This means that employers may share these notices via an email attachment. It is important to note that this amendment does not replace the requirement to post notices in a conspicuous location at the physical worksite. Therefore, postings must still be hung up in the workplace, even when sending electronically.

You can find all the applicable notices, free of charge, on California’s Department of Industrial Relations website.

Employers Next Steps

  • Employers should confirm they have a valid email address for all employees on file.
  • Employers should review their current workplace posters and ensure they are displaying all current and applicable required postings.
  • Consider enrolling in our ePoster service to easily stay compliant with federal, state, and local labor law updates. If you are interested in learning more about this service, please email us.
