CalChamber Webinar Helps Small Businesses Manage CFRA Leave

Did you know that due to the 2021 California Family Rights Act (CFRA) expansion, employers with five or more employees may now have to provide job-protected leaves of absence of up to 12 weeks for an employee’s or family member’s medical condition or to bond with a newborn child?

In our two-day intensive webinar held June 16 and June 17, CalChamber’s employment law experts will walk small businesses through the ins and outs of the CFRA so they can administer this leave with confidence.

In this live webinar — “Managing CFRA Leave Requests at Your Small Business” — not only will you become familiar with the law itself, but you’ll also learn how to apply the law to your workplace. Then, when an employee requests leave under the CFRA, you’re prepared!

On day one, you’ll focus on learning about the law and understanding its requirements, including such topics as:

  • Employee eligibility for CFRA leave;
  • Qualifying reasons for CFRA leave;
  • Amount of leave available under the CFRA;
  • Notice and documentation requirements;
  • Pay and benefits while on CFRA leave; and
  • Best practices.

On day two, you’ll take what you learned on day one and put it into practice using real-life scenarios. You’ll also learn about CFRA-related paperwork and documentation, as well as how to properly track the leave time. Topics include:

  • Required notices, medical certification and return to work release;
  • Designation of leave;
  • Tracking leave, including intermittent leave;
  • Notice and documentation requirements;
  • Interplay between Pregnancy Disability Leave and baby bonding leave under the CFRA; and
  • Scenarios such as employee leave for their own serious health condition, leave for a family member and leave for baby bonding.
