Unpaid Job Protection Rights | Family Leave
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) provides job protection benefits for qualified employees during many family leave situations. Covered employers must provide notice to employees of their rights under the California Family Rights Act; look for a notice that required to be posted in a conspicuous area. CFRA includes up to twelve work weeks of family leave if you qualify.
There are specifics to the California and federal law to consider for family leave. For example, CFRA covers employers that are private companies “who do business in California” and employ 50 or more part or full time employees and it includes non profit and religious organizations. It also includes placement of a child in the employee’s family for adoption or foster care. There are:
- Qualifications for employers and employees
- Covered employees
- Covered employers
- Employer requirements
- Medical certification
- State law and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
