Unlike most states, California has numerous leave laws. Managing these leaves of absence can get confusing for even large employers with a dedicated HR staff — especially since required and optional leaves can overlap with each other.
Additionally, rules concerning existing leaves change frequently, making it challenging to stay up to date.
How do you make sense of the different types of leaves and any legal requirements that apply to them? Let our legal experts demystify common and more difficult-to-resolve leave administration issues for you:
- Leave interaction
- Discussion of both paid leave and unpaid leave
- Eligibility requirements
- Required notices
- When employers must continue health benefits
- How an employee can receive wage replacement benefits while on leave
Our experts speak to a whole host of state and federal laws, including:
- Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL)
- California mandatory paid sick leave
- Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
- Leave as a reasonable accommodation for a disability
- Newly mandated bereavement leave
- Other leaves such as PTO, vacation, jury duty and USERRA
- Plus State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) wage replacement programs
To avoid penalties or costly litigation, it's essential to understand all required leaves of absence, plus any overlapping California and federal legal requirements.
