Description Recording of live event on May 16, 2019 Mobile-optimized for viewing on tablets and smartphonesWebinar Description California law provides some of the country’s strongest workplace protections for employees who are pregnant and/or new parents. That said, employers have due dates too. There are certain “to-due” steps to follow when an employee requests Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) or when you become aware of the need for leave. “Managing pregnancy leaves under PDL can be difficult for employers because employees may also have leave rights under FMLA, CFRA or NPLA,“ says Erika Pickles, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber employment law counsel. “Those laws also allow non-birthing parents protected time off for baby bonding.” Under PDL, employers with 5 or more employees must allow an employee to take up to 4 months of job-protected leave when the employee is disabled by pregnancy. Enacted last year, California’s New Parent Leave Act (NPLA) requires that employers with 20 or more employees provide new parents with up to 12 workweeks of unpaid job-protected leave to bond with a new child. Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the similar California Family Rights Act (CFRA), job-protected parental leave is available for workers at companies with 50 or more employees.
