Handling California's Leave of Absence and Paid Time Off Laws

California has more mandatory leaves of absence and rules about vacation, sick leave and paid time off than any other state. To avoid costly litigation, employers must be aware of when a leave is available to an employee, what rights must be provided to the employee, and what employee obligations can be enforced. Employers also must be familiar with the applicable sick leave rules, vacation requirements, and how to apply paid time off to absences.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler of LightGabler will discuss California's mandatory leaves of absence. Topics covered will include:

  • Which leaves must be provided to employees
  • Eligibility standards for each leave
  • Documentation of absence
  • Reinstatement requirements
  • Insurance requirements
  • New Parent Leave for 2018
  • The interplay between PDL, NPL, PFL, FMLA, CFRA and SDI
  • Disability, pregnancy, baby bonding, family leave
  • Injured or ill family members and domestic partners
  • The relationship between WC, FEHA and ADA
  • Bereavement, jury/witness duty, school visits, domestic violence and time off to vote
  • Mandated and voluntary benefits during a leave of absence
