California employers must follow both federal and state labor law posting requirements. Below, we’ve summarized these requirements and offered a short explanation of the state-specific workplace posters, which are extensive. Note that California agencies updated the requirements for several of these posters in December 2020 and January 2021.

California-Specific Labor Law Posters
Here are the required state labor law posters that California employers must post, in addition to the required federal labor law posters listed above. They must be displayed in a conspicuous and accessible place. Businesses that fail to post these notifications may be subject to penalties or fines.
- California Minimum Wage Poster: This poster details employees’ rights to be paid the correct minimum wage under California law. The current minimum wage in California is $13.00 an hour for employers with 25 or fewer employees and $14.00 an hour for employers with 26 or more employees. Employers are also required to obtain and post a separate Industry Wage Order from the California Industrial Welfare Commission.
- California Payday Notice Poster: This poster requires California employers to notify their employees of their scheduled paydays.
- *California Paid Sick Leave Poster: This poster explains that employees who work 30 or more days within a year are entitled to paid sick leave and describes how sick leave is paid out.
- *California Time Off for Voting Poster: This poster notifies California employees that they may take time off from work to vote. The poster must be displayed at least 10 days before every statewide election.
- *California Unemployment Insurance Benefits Notice to Employees Poster: California employers are required to register with the Employment Development Department to receive the appropriate unemployment insurance notice to post. (This notice is not included on our California state poster.)
- Employment Development Department Notice to Employees Poster: This poster explains how California employees can file for unemployment insurance, disability insurance, and paid family leave. The poster was updated in December 2020 to reflect that paid family leave is now available for employees who need time off to participate in a qualifying event resulting from the military deployment of a spouse, registered domestic partner, parent, or child to a foreign country.
- *California Occupational Safety and Health Protection Law Poster: This poster explains that California employers must provide a workplace free from health and safety hazards.
- *California Workers’ Compensation Law Poster: This poster explains how employees can file a claim for benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses. California employers must post the name of their current workers’ compensation carrier or state whether they are self-insured.
- California No Smoking Policy Poster: California law bans smoking in the workplace, except in certain designated areas. No smoking or smoking signs must be posted where smoking is prohibited or permitted. (These signs do not appear on our California state poster. You can download them from our Free Specialty Labor Law Posters page.)
- *California Access to Medical and Exposure Records Poster: California employers are required to give employees access to their medical records and to records of exposure to toxic substances or harmful physical agents.
- California Emergency Phone Numbers Poster: This poster contains contact information that employees can use if a workplace accident, injury, or emergency occurs. The notice must include contact information for the police, ambulance, fire department, a local hospital, California OSHA, and a physician.
- *California Discrimination and Harassment Policy Poster (revised January 2021): California has a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination based on protected classes, which include race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including pregnancy and childbirth), disability, age, citizenship status, ancestry, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, AIDS/HIV, medical condition, political activities and affiliations, military or veteran status, and status as a victim of domestic violence, stalking, or assault. In 2020, the law was updated to extend the time for filing a claim to three years after the discrimination or harassment occurred. The law also expanded the definition of “race” to include discrimination based on natural hairstyles. In 2021, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) was expanded to cover employees with 5 or more employees; previously, it applied only to employers with 50 or more employees.
- *California Transgender Rights in the Workplace Poster: This poster explains what “transgender” and “gender transition” mean and describes employer obligations in a series of frequently asked questions. It also sets forth how to file a complaint of transgender discrimination under the law. The law was modified in December 2019 to extend the period for filing a claim form within one year of the discriminatory incident to three years.
- *California Family Care and Medical Leave and Pregnancy Disability Leave Poster (revised January 2021): This poster explains that California employees may have the right to leave for their own serious health condition, the serious health condition of an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent), or the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child. The law prohibits employers from denying or interfering with proper requests for this leave. This poster was amended in January 2021 to reflect coverage for employers with five or more employees.
- *California Whistleblowers Are Protected Poster: This poster explains that whistleblowers are protected under the law and provides a contact number that employees can use to report potential violations of federal or state laws, regulations, or rules.
Employers in various industries may have additional labor law posting requirements.
Note that California has additional requirements for employers with a multilingual workforce. The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing requires California employers with at least 10% of their workforce speaking a language other than English to post labor law posters in those languages. The California Department of Industrial Relations also requires employers with workers who speak and read-only Spanish to post the California minimum wage notice in Spanish.
*Included on Spanish poster.
NOTE: Spanish posters may not include all notices published on the English poster and may vary from our standard 18” x 24” size since some states do not issue all notices in Spanish.
Employment posters must be posted in a conspicuous location.
