Upcoming Seminar: From A to Z, The Alphabet Soup of Leave Laws

Posted in Discrimination, FMLA and Other Leaves of Absence, Labor Law, New Legislation and Regulations, Wage & Hour

Summary of Program

Administering leaves of absence and disability accommodations in California can be very challenging.  California has a new paid sick leave law and numerous other leave laws and wage replacement benefits that interact with one another.  To properly administer leaves and accommodate employees, employers need to understand the various types of leave/accommodations available, who is eligible under what circumstances, how to interact with an employee on a leave, and what obligations an employer has when leave is exhausted.  This seminar will discuss important topics to help employers manage these laws, including:
