CalChamber Presents: July 1 Compliance Alert

If you aren't displaying a required employment notices poster that includes the $9.00 state minimum wage for July 1, 2014, act now. Mandatory changes to required Workers' Compensation and Paid Family Leave pamphlets also take effect on that date.

By law, employers must post and hand out the most current employment notices, even if you only have one employee in California. Not informing employees of their rights in the workplace can result in costly lawsuits and fines.
