Description 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Click Additional Information tab for venue and event details. Lunch provided.) Seminar Description Managing leaves of absence isn’t easy. Plenty of documentation and tracking are involved, which aren’t so simple when leaves are intermittent or when California and federal rules overlap. Then there are California’s unique and rather complicated leave laws, such as paid sick leave. With all of the law’s intricacies, employers are clearly confused—and with good reason. Join our employment law experts for this popular one-day seminar as they address common and more difficult-to-resolve issues related to leaves of absence: What benefits apply whether the leave is paid or unpaid Eligibility requirements for various leaves Required notices from the employee and the employer What leaves require employers to continue benefits such as health care When employers must pay an employee on a leave of absence How different leaves interact with each other Our experts speak specifically to state and federal laws regarding: (New) California lactation accommodation requirements Pregnancy disability leave California paid sick leave California and federal family and medical leave Parental leave for employers with 20 to 49 employees, including pending regulations Leave as a reasonable accommodation for a disability Other leaves such as PTO, vacation, jury duty and USERRA To avoid penalties or costly litigation, it's essential to understand all required and optional leaves of absence, plus any overlapping California and federal legal requirements.
