Quote of the Day - If the gods had intended for people to vote, they would have given us candidates.
Employees are eligible for up to two hours of paid time off for the purpose of voting, when necessary. This benefit applies only if employees do not have sufficient time outside working hours to vote. The intent of the law is to provide an opportunity to vote to workers who would not be able to do so because of their jobs, and does not apply to the typical 9 - 5 employee.
Californa State law (California Elections Code Section 14001) requires employers to post a notice to employees advising them of provisions for taking paid leave for the purpose of voting in statewide elections. Employers must post the employee notice 10 days before a statewide election, but If you already have the complete state and federal poster set, this noitce will already be included in that set.
The employee notice must be posted either in the workplace or where it can be seen by employees as they enter or exit their place of work.
You can always encourage employees to register as absentee voters, which allows the employee to vote early and without the pressure of work and time, and givessufficient time to consider the many propositions before casting a vote.
