The Council of Classified Employees has produced a valuable new booklet. Know Your Rights: A guide to workplace laws for classified employees and paraprofessionals in California is a comprehensive analysis of the California Education Code as it relates to support staff in California public schools and colleges.

The booklet includes topics such as:

  • hours of employment
  • vacation and leaves (sick, bereavement, family, personal etc.)
  • collective bargaining rights
  • refusal to perform unsafe work
  • layoff and reemployment
  • unemployment compensation insurance

It also covers the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and contains the Weingarten Rights.

Store this valuable resource on your phone for quick access. If you want to print the booklet, here’s a tip: It’s best printed two-sided. Black-and-white printing is fine.

Download the booklet from the Resources page of the classified section, where it will be permanently posted.
