California has more mandatory leaves of absence than any other state, and the introduction of mandatory and recommended quarantine periods for COVID-19 purposes has complicated matters. To avoid costly litigation, employers must understand 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 of LightGabler will discuss California's mandatory leaves of absence and pandemic quarantine periods. Topics will include the following:

  • Which leaves must be provided to employees?
  • When does my employee have to quarantine (and for how long)?
  • Eligibility standards for each leave or quarantine
  • Documentation of absence
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • Insurance requirements
  • Amendments to the California Family Rights Act for smaller employers, and the impact upon the Family Medical Leave Act for larger employers
  • The interplay between PDL, PFL, FMLA, CFRA and SDI
  • Disability, pregnancy, baby bonding, family leave
  • Injured or ill family members and 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 or quarantine
