Required Notices and Pamphlets
Learn about employer posting requirements and find the required notices and pamphlets to be posted or provided to employees.
Once an employer registers with us, they receive a notice to post, which informs their employees of their rights under the Unemployment Insurance (UI), Disability Insurance (DI), and Paid Family Leave (PFL) and programs. This notice must be posted in a prominent location that is easily seen by the employees.
Employers receive the following notice if they are subject to:
- UI, DI, and PFL - Notice to Employees (DE 1857A) (PDF)
- UI only - Notice to Employees - Unemployment Insurance Benefits (DE 1857D) (PDF)
- DI and PFL only - Notice to Employees (DE 1858) (PDF)
For forms in other languages, you can find them in our Online Forms and Publications.
Notices and Pamphlets
Employers must provide a copy of the following to each employee when appropriate. The following pamphlets explain employees' benefit rights:
- For Your Benefit: California’s Programs for the Unemployed (DE 2320) (PDF): Provides information on UI, DI, PFL, and Job Service benefits available to the employee.
- Disability Insurance Provisions (DE 2515) (PDF): This brochure outlines the DI program.
- Paid Family Leave (DE 2511) (PDF): This brochure outlines the DI program.
Note: Voluntary Disability Insurance (DI) Plan insurers have similar literature. Voluntary DI Plan employers must also supply claim forms to their employees. For more information, visit Voluntary Plans.
All employers are required to notify all of their employees of the federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). For more information, view the federal and state EITC information on the Year-End Notification Requirements page. Provide the information to each employee within one week before or after providing them their W-2 or 1099.
Written notice must be given immediately to employees of their discharge, layoff, leave of absence, or change in employment status. This sample notice (PDF) meets the minimum requirements. You may wish to prepare a duplicate employee notice and keep a copy for your records. No written notice is required if it is a voluntary quit, promotion or demotion, change in work assignment or location (some changes in location require a WARN notice), or if work stopped due to a trade dispute.
- The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act requires certain employers to give affected employees at least 60 days written advance notice of any plant closing or mass layoff.
