Tomorrow is Election Day, which means that all businesses must allow their employees to take up to two paid hours to vote – either at the beginning or the end of their shift.
Employers have the option to allow for a different time off during the shift if it’s mutually agreeable to the employee. Employees should give at least two days notice if they would like to vote during a different time of their work shift.
Remember that employers should always display posters describing the above voting leave privileges at least 10 days before every state election. You can find the poster here.
The California polls open tomorrow, Nov. 6, at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m.
