EMPLOYMENT POSTER UPDATE
Important Harbor Dental Society Members: Here are updates and reminders to the set of posters (orange and grey published and distributed to you in May 2015).
You can download new posters from the links provided.
A new poster set will be available Spring 2017.
The Department of Industrial Relations requires employers to post information advising employees of workers' compensation benefits in a conspicuous location frequented by employees where it can be easily read during the workday. In addition to minor verbiage changes, the California Division of Workers’ Compensation made substantial changes to the notice including:
- Medical Care
- Permanent Disability Benefits
- Supplemental Job Displacement Benefit
- Naming Your Own Physician
- Reporting Injury
- See Your Primary Treating Physician
This poster should be posted in English and Spanish if an employer has Spanish-speaking employees.

Employers must prominently display a list of employees' rights under the whistleblower laws, including the telephone number of a whistleblower hotline maintained by the Office of the Attorney General.
Changes include expanded to protect an employee who complains internally to a person with authority over the employee or another employee who has the authority to investigate, discover, or correct the violation.
This is a mandatory change. Lettering must be larger than size 14 point type.
