California has more mandatory leaves of absence than any other state. To maintain business operations and 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 will discuss California's mandatory leaves of absence. Topics will include the following:

  • When is my employee entitled to a leave of absence?
  • Eligibility standards for each leave
  • Documentation of absence
  • Notice requirements
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • 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 and witness duty, school visits, crime victims, voting and more
  • Mandatory and voluntary benefits during a leave of absence
