Description A recording of the two-part live event: May 19 - May 20, 2022 Webinar Description Providing eligible employees with appropriate leaves of absences can often be complex and confusing. Two of the most common leaves of absence — the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and its federal counterpart, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) — add to the confusion because they provide for both overlapping and separate family and medical leaves, thanks to the CFRA's expansion in 2021. Larger employers with 50 or more employees covered by the CFRA and the FMLA must pay careful attention because these two leave laws interact differently. The CFRA expansion not only broadened employee eligibility but also expanded the qualifying reasons for which an employee may take CFRA leave. During this two-day intensive webinar, CalChamber’s employment law experts will delve into the many requirements for properly administering leave under the CFRA. Join us to learn about the recent changes to this job-protected leave, related paperwork and documentation, and much more. 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 the CFRA and the FMLA, as well has how to properly track the leave time.
