NEW FMLA NOTICE C, Effective March 8, 2013 (All States)
Effective, March 8, 2013 the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) issued a final rule implementing important regulations expanding FMLA protections.
“The first expansion provides families of eligible veterans with the same job-protected FMLA leave currently available to families of military service members and it also enables more military families to take leave for activities that arise when a service member is deployed,” according to the DOL. “The second expansion modifies existing rules so that airline personnel and flight crews are better able to make use of the FMLA’s protections.”
The expanding protections in the FMLA Notice C on your 2013 California and Federal Employment Notices poster only applies if you are a:
Private-sector employer, with 50 or more employees in 20 or more workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year, including a joint employer or successor in interest to a covered employer;
Public agency, including a local, state, or federal government agency, regardless of the number of employees you employ; or
Public or private elementary or secondary school, regardless of the number of employees you employ.
The downloads of the revised Notice C are formatted to go directly over the current Notice C on your labor poster.
Changes in California's Pregnancy Disability Posters
There have been several changes to CA labor posters. I recommend ordering new posters for 2013.
Most posters do NOT include the new Notice A or Notice B regarding Pregnancy Disability Leave.
Notice A: Employers with 5-49 employees
Notice B: Employers with 50 or more employees
Message From CA EDD ===================================
Change in Reporting Newly Hired or Rehired Employees
Effective January 1, 2013, the passage of new legislation now defines an individual as arehire if the employer/employee relationship has ended and the returning individual had been separated from that same employer for at least 60 consecutive days. Employers are required by law to report all newly hired or rehired employees to the New Employee Registry (NER) within twenty (20) days of their start-of-work date. The start-of-work date is the first day services were performed for wages.
