Navigating the Interplay of the Family and Medical Leave Act, the California Family Rights Act and the Pregnancy Discrimination Leave Act

May 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:15 am CDT


This webinar will help to clarify the legal obligations under the different laws but, more importantly, help to explain how they interact with each other, or in some cases, don’t interact at all.Why Should You Attend:

Too often, employers create problems for themselves when it comes to navigating their legal obligations under the various federal and local laws on leave and, in particular, medical leave.

This lack of understanding can lead to tragic and costly consequences for both the employers and the employee who requested leave.

While the right to leave and the obligation to conduct a reasonable accommodation for a disability is clear, how the different laws interact with each other can be confusing and awkward, at best.

Any employer with employees in California should attend but it is particularly important for smaller employers due to the recent expansion of the CFRA to include employers with 5 or more employees. Any employer planning an expansion into California should attend as well.
