California Required Notices
Effective March 8, 2013 – The Family and Medical Leave Act notice has been revised to reflect the changes caused by the recently approved rule. All Employers are required to update their posters with the latest version that reflects these changes.
What Has Changed?
The definition of “Veteran” has been revised to include both those who serve and those discharged in the past 5 years (previously it was only those who served). The explicit definition of “Serious Injury or Illness” was removed as well, replaced by a notice that there are differences between the definition of “Serious Injury or Illness” for a service member or veteran, and “Serious Health Condition” under the FMLA.

6 Federal Required Labor Posters
The posters must be displayed in a place where all employees and applicants for employment can see them.
There are six mandatory postings: EEOC, FMLA, Federal Minimum Wage, OSHA, Employee Polygraph Protection Act, and USERRA. California posters are newly revised with “Notice A” and “Notice B” relating to the rights of your pregnant employees.
