The notice must be provided to an employee in English and the employee’s primary language if the Mayor has made available a sample template of the notice in that language, and the employer is either aware of the employee's primary language or the employee requests a notice in his or her primary language. The notice in currently only available in English and Spanish. The Spanish version is available here. All notices must be signed and dated by the employer and the employee, and the employer must retain copies of the signed notices as proof of compliance.
