Summary

When employees request leave for family and medical reasons or disability, or need time off due to on the job injuries or illnesses, California employers face competing - and evolving - obligations under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA); the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA); and workers compensation laws.

 

Get practical solutions for handling the entanglement of these laws, including:

• Maintaining compliant leave of absence policies and practices, with a focus on the new CFRA regulations
• Determining whether the workers’ comp injury constitutes a “disability” or a “serious health condition”
• Handling requests for intermittent absences, reduced schedules or extensions of leave
• Guarding against costly FEHA/ADA liability
