DFEH Publishes a Revised Sexual Harassment Brochure For California Employers

On May 2, 2017, the California DFEH announced that it has released a new sexual harassment brochure (entitled “Sexual Harassment: The Facts about Sexual Harassment” [DFEH-185-ENG]), which California employers must distribute to all new hire employees.  In addition to the “trifold brochure”, the DFEH has also published this brochure in poster form (Sexual Harassment: The Facts about Sexual Harassment [DFEH-185P-ENG]).

In addition to these materials, the DFEH also released new brochures relating to the California Family Rights Act [DFEH-E03B-ENG] (which must be distributed to employees when they request CFRA leave) and Pregnancy Leave [DFEH-E02B-ENG] (which must be distributed to an employee when an employer learns that employee is pregnant).

Finally, earlier this year, the DFEH released medical certification forms relating to pregnancy and CFRA leave.

These certifications should be provided to an employee when seeking medical certification relating to pregnancy or an employee’s request for CFRA.

It is recommended that all California employers go to the DFEH website and verify that they are using the most up-to-date brochures,
