    California Leave Laws are confusing - especially during these times! With over 20 different leave laws, the COVID-19 Pandemic, FFCRA, ePSL and eFMLA, how do you know if your company has to provide the leave and/or which of your employees are eligible to take time off work? As employees come back to work after and during quarantine, how do you know what leave someone is eligible to take and how do you document and apply the time off accurately? It’s important to know about pregnancy disability leave and family medical leave laws, but there are so many others that employers need to understand - including information on COVID-19 leave laws

    We’ll cover them all and provide you with a CA Leave Law Cheat Sheet to refer to in the future!

    Learning Objectives:

    All of the leave and time off laws governing California employers (FFCRA, FMLA, CFRA,  Military Leave, Jury Duty, Domestic Violence, Volunteer, School Suspension, Time off to Vote, WC, Kin Care, COVID-19, Drug and Alcohol and more...)

    • Determining eligibility

    • Why employee headcounts are so important
    • Leave Laws that impact everyone
    • Employer & Employee rights 
    • Notice requirements & managing the paperwork process
    • Pregnancy leave laws
    • Effects on PTO, vacation, sick, and wages

    After the webinar, you will have a clear understanding of leave and time off laws governing employers. Do not miss out on this Virtual Training full of information you need to know!
