California has the most leave of absence laws of any state, and the list of available leaves continues to grow. To avoid costly litigation while maintaining functional business operations, employers must understand what leaves are available, know when a leave is appropriate for a particular employee, correctly apply available rights for covered employees, and then manage what employee obligations can or cannot be enforced.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Ryan M. Haws will discuss California's leave of absence laws. Topics will include the following:

  • What leaves are available? (hint…it can depend on your employee count)
  • When is my employee entitled to a leave of absence?
  • Eligibility standards for each type of leave
  • Can I just run FMLA and CFRA concurrently all the time? (hint … no)
  • The interplay between the alphabet soup (PDL, FMLA, CFRA, SDI and PFL)
  • Injured or ill family members, domestic partners and the “designated” person
  • The relationship between WC, FMLA, CFRA, FEHA and ADA
  • Bereavement and reproductive loss leave
  • Jury and witness duty, school visits, crime victims, voting and more
  • Documentation of absences
  • Notice requirements
  • Continuation of healthcare benefits
  • Mandatory and voluntary benefits during a leave of absence
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • And much, much more…
