Voting Leave Notice Must Be Posted
California requires employers to post a notice informing employees of their right to voting leave. Employers should post the notice in a conspicuous location at least 10 days before a state or national election. The notice covers the basic voting leave rights for employees, which include the following:
- Employees are eligible for paid time off for voting only if they do not have sufficient time outside of working hours to vote;
- Employees may take as much time as they need, but they’ll be paid for a maximum of two hours;
- An employer may require employees to give advance notice that they will need to take time off for voting;
- An employer may require employees to take this time off at the beginning or end of their shift.
