California Dreaming or Administrative Nightmare?

Disability Management Employer Coalition [DMEC]

June 23, 2020
Recorded Online

As leave laws expand nationwide, one state still dominates as the most challenging and complex — some even say it is an administrative nightmare! The mere mention of California leave will often elicit groans and comments of empathy for HR teams. California’s Family Rights Act (CFRA) was introduced in 1994 on the heels of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Administering both presents unique challenges, not to mention the more than 12 additional unpaid leave laws in the state. Add to that multiple paid leave requirements, and it’s no wonder human resource professionals are losing sleep!

In this session, we will review the top five areas HR should be wary of when administering leave in California. This will include some key differences between FMLA and CFRA (and the small employer/worksite equivalent CA New Parent) that create issues for HR, and the specific legal requirements of each. We will also discuss leave as an accommodation under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and how it interacts with FMLA and CFRA. Lastly, we’ll review the different paid leave laws, their interaction with unpaid leave, and best practices for how to coordinate and remain compliant. While leave administration in California is unique and challenging, there are tools and strategies to ease the burden and help you sleep easy at night.

This webinar will be 90 minutes to accommodate additional Q&A.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the differences and legal requirements of FMLA and CFRA / CA New Parent.
  • Gain awareness of your obligations to provide leave as an accommodation under FEHA.
  • Provide an overview of paid leave requirements in CA, and how they intersect with unpaid leave laws.
