Four months after providing the original template, the Labor Commissioner has posted a new template for employers to use when hiring new employees. As you may recall, pursuant to the Wage Theft Protection Act, all new employees must receive and sign a “Notice to Employee” under Labor Code 2810.5. The form includes information regarding the name and addresses of the employer, pay rates, and the employer’s workers’ compensation carrier.
Employers were not required to provide the required notice to existing employees (unless one of the listed items changes), but all new hires must receive and execute the form. The new form has slight changes affecting temporary staffing agencies. Employers are not required to provide the new form to employees who already filled out the old form.
The new form can be downloaded here.
