With COVID-19 vaccines reaching more Californians, it’s natural for employers that have been operating remotely to think about bringing workers back to the physical workspace. But sorting out the details of how and when to reopen the worksite will take some planning.

Welcoming a new addition to a family is one of the most important times in a person’s life.

As a California employer, are you prepared to manage the various leaves and benefits available to new and expecting parents? This includes time for both parents to bond with a child during the first 12 months after the child’s birth, adoption or foster care placement.

Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) provides job-protected leave to an expecting employee. The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and its federal counterpart, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), provide job-protected leave for baby bonding.

“Since PDL and CFRA laws apply to California employers with five or more employees, it’s essential to understand the different qualifying reasons for these leaves of absence, plus who is eligible and when,” says Erika Frank, CalChamber Executive Vice President and General Counsel.

Join CalChamber’s legal experts on April 15 for clarity on these job-protected leaves so you can comply with confidence. Topics will include:

  • Leave rights under PDL
  • Baby bonding leave under the CFRA and FMLA
  • Continuation of health benefits and return-to-work rights
  • Leave administration and tracking
  • Best practices
