Leave of Absence, New & Old – Continue to Cause Employers Heartburn.
Speaker Spotlight with William Betley of Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo
Understanding new leave of absence laws and their interaction with existing leave laws is critical.
The state of California has numerous complex leave of absence laws set in place to assure job protection. Now more than ever, especially with the significant expansion of the CFRA, is it essential for HR professionals in 2021 to properly manage, classify and document LOA in their organization.
Now that SB 1383 is in effect as of January 1, 2021, CFRA applies to many more employers. Small businesses with employees as few as five, are responsible for providing, navigating and monitoring leaves of absence. In addition, an employee is now eligible for CFRA protected leave to care for siblings, grandparents, grandchildren, adult children, and parent-in-laws who are seriously ill.
Employers must be prepared and understand how all the leave pieces interconnect.
