Seminar Description

LOOKS LIKE ALPHABET SOUP TO ME…

California provides employees with more leaves of absence (with employers of all sizes) than any other state. To ensure the utmost productivity in the workplace and avoid costly litigation, employers must be aware of the leaves available to employees and the employee obligations an employer can enforce.

In this informative and interactive program, employment attorney Karen L. Gabler of LightGabler will discuss the employer's obligations in handling mandatory leaves of absence.

Topics covered will include:

  • The interplay between statutory leave laws and reasonable accommodation
  • New laws on payment of insurance premiums during leaves
  • Mandatory and optional leaves of absence
  • Eligibility standards for each leave
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • Deciphering 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
