Seminar Description


With summer upon us, vacations increase and employers must consider how to function in the workplace with a reduced staff. And yet, even when vacation usage is down, California has more mandatory leaves of absence than any other state. To avoid costly litigation, employers must be aware of when a leave of available to an employee, what rights must be provided to the employee, and what employee obligations can be enforced.

In this fast-paced interactive seminar, employment law partner Karen L. Gabler will discuss the myriad of leaves of absence available to California employees and related benefits and obligations.

Topics covered will include:

  • Which leaves must be provided to employees
  • Eligibility standards for each leave
  • Documentation of absence
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • Insurance requirements
  • The interplay between PDL, PFL, FMLA, CFRA, ADA and SDI
  • Disability, pregnancy, baby bonding, family leave
  • Injured or ill family members and registered domestic partners
  • The relationship between workers' compensation, the FEHA and the ADA
  • Bereavement, jury and witness duty, school visits, domestic violence and time off to vote
  • Mandated and voluntary benefits during a leave of absence
  • NEW insurance requirements for 2012
