Los Angeles Lawyers Representing Workers Throughout California

Has your employer prevented you from exercising your right to vote? If so, you should consult the experienced Los Angeles employment lawyers at the Kokozian Law Firm to understand your voting rights as an employee.

Protections Under the California Elections Code

When an employee does not have time outside of working hours to vote, Cal. Election Code § 14000 et seq. requires employers to provide the employee with sufficient time off to vote in statewide elections. All employers, regardless of size, must provide paid time off to vote. Employees are eligible regardless of their length of employment. Time off to vote is taken either at the beginning or the end of an employee's regular working shift, depending on which allows more time to vote and less time off from work. An employer is required to pay an employee for the first two hours of time off to vote.

At least 10 days before any statewide election, every employer must conspicuously post a notice at the workplace informing employees of these provisions of the Election Code. The employee then must give the employer at least two working days' notice of the need for time off to vote.

Any employer who willfully neglects or refuses to perform any duty under any California law relating to elections may be fined up to $1,000 or confined to state prison.
