Our legal experts will unravel both common and difficult-to-resolve leave administration challenges for you: Leave interaction Discussion of both paid leave and unpaid leave Eligibility requirements Required notices When employers must continue health benefits How an employee can receive wage replacement benefits while on leave Our experts speak to a whole host of state and federal laws, including: Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) California mandatory paid sick leave Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) California Family Rights Act (CFRA) Leave as a reasonable accommodation for a disability Bereavement leave Newly mandated reproductive loss leave Other leaves such as PTO, vacation, jury duty and USERRA Plus State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) wage replacement programs To avoid penalties or costly litigation, it's essential to understand all required leaves of absence, plus any overlapping California and federal legal requirements.Virtual Seminar Details Comprehensive overview of differing California and federal rules for required and optional leaves of absence Presented by top CalChamber Employment Law Experts Ideal for HR professionals, legal/employment law counsel, office managers, business owners or anyone responsible for hiring and staffing Approved for 6.5 HRCI, MCLE, and PDC credits.
