Is your company aware of employer obligations to allow employees time off to vote? You may have to provide reasonable time off to vote, and up to two hours off can be paid. E-mail remote employees and/or post this poster in a conspicuous place by October 24!
If you are scheduled to be at work during that time and you do not have sufficient time outside of working hours to vote at a statewide election, California law allows you to take up to two hours off to vote, without losing any pay. You may take as much time as you need to vote, but only two hours of that time will be paid. Your time off for voting can be only at the beginning or end of your regular work shift, whichever allows the most free time for voting and the least time off from your regular working shift, unless you make another arrangement with your employer.
If three working days before the election you think you will need time off to vote, you must notify your employer at least two working days prior to the election.
