New California Family Rights Act Regulations Take Effect July 1, 2015 (6-10-15 Webinar Recording)

California recently approved amended California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”) regulations, which go into effect July 1, 2015. Attend this complimentary webinar to learn about a host of changes triggered by these amended regulations, including:

  • New timing for responding to CFRA leave requests;
  • A revised CFRA medical certification form;
  • Reducing exempt salaries for intermittent CFRA leave;
  • Explicit prohibition on fitness-for-duty examinations as a condition of an employee’s return to work;
  • The increased ability to take CFRA leave into account when determining certain bonuses; and
  • Added prohibitions against interfering with CFRA leave and eligibility.

In addition, we’ll review key differences between the CFRA and the Federal Family & Medical Leave Act. California employers must track and honor the more generous provisions of each law. We’ll also discuss proactive steps employers should take to ensure that leave policies/practices are legally compliant
