MY EMPLOYEE IS OUT...WHAT DO I DO?

California has more mandatory leaves of absence than any other state. To avoid costly litigation, employers must be aware of when a leave is available to an employee, what rights must be provided to the employee, and what employee obligations can be enforced.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss California's numerous leaves of absence and related benefits and obligations.

Topics covered will include the following:

  • 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 and SDI
  • Disability, pregnancy, baby bonding, family leave
  • Injured or ill family members and registered domestic partners
  • The relationship between WC, FEHA and ADA
  • Bereavement, jury/witness duty, school visits, domestic violence and time off to vote
  • Mandated and voluntary benefits during a leave of absence
  • New insurance requirements
