Updates to 2017-18 Required Poster Set


Regulatory changes have occurred since the printing of the 2017-18 CDA Required Poster Set. As of December 2017, the three changes are:

  1. The California Department of Industrial Relations updated Wage Order 4-2001 to reflect increases in the state minimum wage. The correct industry wage order, available on the department’s website, bears a revision date of 12/2016.
  2. Starting Jan. 1, 2018, all California employers are required to post a “Transgender Rights in the Workplace” poster developed by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing. The poster can be accessed on the DFEH website.
  3. The Division of Occupational Safety and Health, under the California Department of Industrial Relations, in November 2017 updated the Safety and Health Protection on the Job notice. All employers are required to print and post the notice found on the DIR website.

All notices are required to be placed in an area frequented by employees and where they may be easily read during the workday.

Because these changes come after the 2017-18 CDA Required Poster Set printing, each employer or practice owner is required to print and post the updated notices. The Required Poster Sets will not be reprinted to reflect this change.

For more information, see the CDA Practice Support resource “List of Required Postings in a Dental Office.”

If an employer later decides to revoke the offer based on an individual's criminal history, the employer must undertake a procedure called the “fair chance” process.
