What State and Federal Statutes Protect California Employees From Leave Law Violations?
The primary state and federal laws that protect employees from leave law violations in California include:
- California Family Rights Act(CFRA)
- California Pregnancy Disability Leave(PDL)
- California Paid Sick Law Leave
- Fair Employment and Housing Act(FEHA)
- Family and Medical Leave Act(FMLA)
The FEHA is enforced by the Civil Rights Department (CRD), and contains family care
and medical leave provisions for California employees. The CFRA provides eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave to care for their own serious health condition or a family member with a serious health condition, or to bond with a new child.
In addition, California law requires covered employers to provide employees disabled by pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition with unpaid, job-protected leave (PDL) and/or accommodations.
The law also requires covered employers to grant eligible employees’ requests for up to five days of bereavement leave upon the death of certain family members. In addition, our California leave of absence laws protects military members, disabled employees, and others who need to take time away to address their personal, medical, or family needs.
CFRA provides additional leave protections for California employees than its federal counterpart, FMLA. Combined, employees are protected from threats of being discriminated against, demoted, replaced, or terminated for requesting or taking leave for covered purposes.
If you are a California employee, and you can demonstrate by a preponderance of the evidence that your employer has violated your rights outlined in both state and federal leave laws, we can help you pursue the damages you are entitled to for their unlawful behavior.
