Leave laws remain one of the hottest topics in employment law for California employers. Attend this webinar to learn about key new developments, and for an A-Z review of California’s vast array of employee leave laws.  The program will also address important leave topics including:

  • Anticipated New California Regulations:  Key changes reflected in the California Fair Employment & Housing Council’s proposed regulations regarding the California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”) and New Parent Leave Act (including significant differences with CFRA leave).
  • Expansion of Parental Leave to FMLA-Ineligible Employees:  How California’s New Parent Leave Act affects both large and small employers with at least 20 employees within a 75-mile radius, and necessary updates to leave policies, practices, and notices.
  • Sick Leave:  Updates on California’s sick leave law, and which other U.S. states/cities impose paid sick leave requirements.
  • Military Leave:  Expansion of leave rights to members of the State Military Reserve.
  • Recent Case Updates:  Including denial of an employee’s FMLA interference claim on the basis that she failed to notify her employer of the need for leave as soon as practicable.
