When employers across America face a labor or employment issue in the Golden State, they get nervous!

And they should... because in addition to federal law, there's a myriad of  California leave laws to comply with, including but not limited to;

  • California Family Rights Act (CFRA),
  • California Pregnancy Disability Leave Law (PDL),
  • School Activities Leave and Literary Assistance Leave,
  • Domestic Violence Leave, Sexual Assault and Stalking Victims’ Leave,
  • Paid Organ and Bone Marrow Donation Leave, and
  • Paid Voting Leave, Family Military Leave and Civil Air Patrol Leave.

And that's not all!  California also law defines “disability” more broadly than the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and provides that failure to engage in the interactive process is unlawful in itself and allows an independent cause of action.

Are you sure you’re compliant with the dizzying number of California leave laws and accommodation requirements?

Learning Objectives

This program combines a comprehensive review of the Golden State’s leave and reasonable accommodation legal requirements with practical guidance about best practices to maximize employment law compliance and mitigate legal risk, including:

  • The material differences between the FMLA and CFRA;
  • The interplay between the FMLA, CFRA, and PDL;
  • California’s New Parent Leave Act (effective January 1, 2018), which requires eve more employers (those with at least 20 employees within 75 miles of the employee’s worksite) to provide baby bonding leave to eligible employees;
  • The explosion of California paid sick leave laws in the past several years; and
  • Limits on California employers’ ability to require employees to use vacation, paid time off, and/or paid sick leave during FMLA, CFRA, and PDL leave.

Whether your organization is already employing in California, or you are considering it, this program will help you:

  • Understand the key differences between the various types of leave, including material distinctions between the FMLA and CFRA that often trap;
  • Correctly handle the interplay between the FMLA, CFRA, and PDL;
  • Understand California SDI and PFL wage replacement benefits and their interplay with the FMLA, CFRA, and PDL;
  • Effectively manage leaves of absence (including intermittent and reduced schedule leaves) and help curtail intermittent leave abuse;
  • Be aware of employers’ obligation to reasonably accommodate and/or transfer California employees “affected by pregnancy”;
  • Appreciate the scope of California employers’ obligation to provide additional leave (beyond what the FMLA, CFRA, and PDL provide) as a reasonable accommodation;
  • Understand California employers’ obligation to engage in the interactive process and to provide effective reasonable accommodation(s) to disabled employees; and
  • Develop and implement a strategy for California paid sick leave compliance.
