Managing these leaves of absence can get confusing for even large employers with a dedicated HR staff — especially since required and optional leaves can overlap with each other. Adding to this complex mix is SB 1383, the newly expanded California Family Rights Act (CFRA) which extends coverage of the CFRA’s job-protected leave provisions to now include all employers with five or more employees. The sweeping changes took effect on January 1, 2021, and the new law includes additional expansions that will also affect large employers. How do you make sense of the different types of leaves and any legal requirements that apply to them? Let our legal experts demystify common and more difficult-to-resolve issues 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 specifically to new and existing California and federal laws regarding: Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) California mandatory paid sick leave Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Newly expanded California Family Rights Act (CFRA) Leave as a reasonable accommodation for a disability State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) 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.Product Features Comprehensive overview of differing California and federal rules for required and optional leaves of absence Presented by CalChamber’s top employment law experts Mobile-optimized for viewing on tablets and smartphones Ability to submit questions online throughout the virtual seminar Downloadable slides and supplemental training material This virtual seminar offers information only and does not serve as or replace legal advice.
