2020 Webinar: New Year, New Eligibility – CFRA’s New Look for 2021

California wrapped up its 2020 legislative session with the Governor passing several bills that bring dramatic changes to employee leave requirements. The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) saw changes that not only expanded the situations in which an eligible employee may qualify for leave by broadening the definition of a family member, but also significantly increased the number of employers who must comply with its provisions. The new law decreases the employer eligibility threshold to just five employees, thus expanding the obligation to provide leave to many small employers not covered before.

Whether you are a newly obligated employer under CFRA or an employer with years of experience administering the law, this webinar will leave you better equipped to manage claims under the law. This session will explore what’s changing and when, and what that means for California employers. We will guide attendees through the multiple leave laws at play in California, with a deep dive into CFRA, and paying particular attention to one of the most common leave reasons for which employers administer claims: pregnancy. Our legal expert will lay out practical application of how and when the laws intersect and how to maintain compliance going into the new year with new obligations under the law.
