Sherry Shavit, Esq.
Tharpe & Howell

FMLA, CFRA, ADA, FEHA, PDL, PSL, WC and more… the alphabet soup of complying with federal and state leave of absence laws can be daunting and is one of the easiest – and most common – traps for California employers to fall into.

In this presentation, we will swim through the morass of leave laws, first going over the different types of protected absences available to employees. We will then dive deeper into common mistakes employers make and how to avoid them, using real-life examples, including how one employer fell into several traps that led to expensive litigation.

3 Key Takeaways:

  1. An overview of federal and state protected leave laws;
  2. Common mistakes employers make in administering leaves of absence; and
  3. Measures employers can take to avoid these pitfalls and costly litigation.
