How comfortable are you with leave administration? On the 20th anniversary of the FMLA in 2013, the Department of Labor found that 75% of employers believed complying with the FMLA was “easy.” Is that surprising to you? Navigating the FMLA can be challenging for most. But wait! What if you have employees working in California, too? Did you know that an eligible California employee can take more than seven months off in a 12-month period for certain leave reasons? Attend this session to gain a better understanding of California's medical and family leave laws and become more confident in administering leave-of-absence requests for your California employees.

  • Understand the basic elements of the current FMLA, CFRA and PDL for organizations with employees inside and outside of California.
  • Understand the notice process and its practical application.
  • Ensure appropriate coordination of leave provisions.
  • Explore other California leave laws.
