Employers are required by law to withhold and remit SDI contributions and to inform their employees of SDI benefits. State and federal regulations require employers to display various posters and notices to inform their employees of certain laws and regulations pertaining to employment and working conditions. Currently, employers are responsible for providing information on SDI to their employees by posting and providing the following:
“Notice to Employees: Unemployment Insurance/Disability Insurance Benefits” (DE 1857A) - Advises employees of their right to claim Unemployment Insurance (UI), DI, and PFL benefits.
“State Disability Insurance Provisions” (DE 2515) - For new hires and again when the employee notifies the employer they need to take time off from work due to their non-industrial medical condition.
“Paid Family Leave insurance program” (DE 2511) - For new hires and again when the employee notifies the employer they need to take time off from work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child.
The pamphlets and poster are provided to employers at no cost. You can order forms and publications through the Online Forms and Publications page, including download, and print Disability Insurance forms and publications, and Paid Family Leave forms, publications, and informational materials.
You may also order pamphlets and posters by calling our toll-free telephone number.
If you are an employer and have questions about the contribution rate, please contact your local Employment Tax Office.
