Roughly 420,000 babies are born annually in California — many of whom are born to those who work for employers across the state.
Although news that an employee is expecting a new bundle of joy can bring excitement to the workplace, it also means the employer must prepare for that employee to take one or more protected leaves of absence, either during the pregnancy or after the birth of the child — or possibly both.
Then, beyond providing the correct leave, employers must navigate complex rules pertaining to such issues as compensation, benefits and reinstatement during that employee’s protected leave(s).
On June 15, the California Chamber of Commerce is presenting a live webinar titled, “Pregnant Pause — Providing Pregnancy and Child Bonding Leaves” to demystify the rules surrounding pregnancy and child bonding leaves so employers can seamlessly administer them.
Join CalChamber employment law experts for a clarifying discussion about:
- California’s Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL);
- The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA);
- How PDL, CFRA and FMLA interact with each other during pregnancy and after childbirth;
- Returning employees to work following exhaustion or expiration of their leaves;
- Case studies involving requests to use PDL, CFRA and FMLA; and
- Best practices.
