The 2021 California Family Rights Act (CFRA) expansion to cover businesses with five or more employees added to these challenges. Did you know that due to the 2021 CFRA expansion, small employers may now have to provide job-protected leave of absence of up to 12 weeks for an employee’s family member’s medical condition or to bond with a newborn child? In this two-day intensive webinar, CalChamber’s employment law experts will walk you through the ins and outs of the CFRA so your business can administer this leave with confidence. You’ll go beyond just familiarizing yourself with the law; you'll also learn how to apply it to your workplace, so you are prepared to address employee leave requests. What You'll Learn Day 1 (Part 1) focuses on learning about the law and understanding its requirements.
