Description (Part 1) May 27, 2021: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT(Part 2) May 28, 2021: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. PT Webinar Description The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and its federal counterpart, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), provide for overlapping as well as separate family and medical leaves. Larger employers with 50 or more employees take note because CFRA and FMLA leave laws now interact differently. On January 1, 2021, the CFRA was significantly expanded in reach and scope — including changes to the threshold of covered employers, who can take CFRA leave, and the qualifying reasons. This includes instances when the two leaves no longer run concurrently. During this two-day intensive webinar, CalChamber’s employment law experts will delve into new requirements for the CFRA. Join us to learn how these changes to job-protected leave to care for a family member may impact how you properly administer CFRA and FMLA moving forward. What You'll Learn Day 1 (Part 1) focuses on learning about the expansions and changes to the CFRA, understanding its requirements, and how they may interact with the FMLA. Topics include: Employee eligibility for CFRA leave and how it now differs from FMLA leave Qualifying reasons for CFRA leave and where FMLA qualifying reasons overlap Amount of leave available under the CFRA and FMLA Notice and documentation requirements Pay and benefits while on CFRA/FMLA leave Best practices Day 2 (Part 2) takes what you learned on Day 1 and puts it into practice through real-life scenarios. During this second day, you’ll learn about the paperwork and documentation related to CFRA and FMLA, as well has how to properly track the leave time. Topics include: Required notices, medical certification, return to work release Designation of leave Tracking leave, including intermittent leave Notice and documentation requirements Interplay between Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) and baby bonding leave under the CFRA and FMLA Scenarios covered: employee leave for their own serious health condition, leave for a family member, and leave for baby bonding Webinar Details Presented by CalChamber's top employment law experts Specifically targeted to anyone responsible for hiring and staffing at California businesses with 50 or more employees.
