The Growing Forest of Leaves
The forest of leave laws continues to grow — Employers must keep on top of these changes to remain compliant. In between all the other pressing challenges for businesses and human resources in 2021, come and get updated on the new and revised leave of absence laws that may apply to your business.
Some of the questions that will be answered include:
• California Family Rights Act (CFRA) — How has this law been expanded? Does this affect your business now? What family members has this law been expanded to include? What key definition changes do you need to know about?
• California’s Kin Care — How has this rule changed? How does this affect your organization?
• California’s Paid Family Leave (PFL) — How has this state benefit expanded? How does it affect your organization?
• Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) for COVID-19 — What is the status of this law? What do businesses need to know? How will your organization decide to handle?
Join us and our speaker, Jeanine DeBacker, as she walks us through the new and revised leave of absence rules, how they interact, and how you can comply.
