The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is one of the most complex and confusing employment laws out there—and even more so for California HR professionals who must also provide leave coverage under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA).

CFRA leave becomes even more challenging when new laws get thrown into the mix. For example, California Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed Senate Bill 114 into law, which creates new COVID-19 supplemental paid sick leave (SPSL) benefits. SB 114 went into effect on February 19, 2022 and applies to employers with more than 25 employees. Covered employers must provide COVID-19 SPSL retroactive to January 1, 2022, until September 30, 2022.

This is just one example of the recent changes California HR professionals must have to take into consideration when administering and managing employee leave. A similar measure went into effect in 2021, filling what otherwise would have been a coverage gap left when the SPSL provisions of Assembly Bill 1867 expired on December 31, 2020.

To remain compliant with these changes, you—and your organization’s managers—must also have a firm understanding of how to implement and manage CFRA leave. While CFRA leave compliance can be tricky, learning how to comply can be easy when you attend the 2022 FMLA/CFRA Virtual Master Class: Advanced Skills for Employee Leave Management.

Join expert attorneys from Fisher Phillips for a live, interactive FMLA/CFRA master class on June 13-14, 2022. Uncover FMLA and CFRA basics and be on your way to becoming a master of leave administration with this special virtual event.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will understand:

  • How to determine CFRA eligibility quickly and easily,
  • What qualifies as a serious health condition,
  • Tips and guidance for “gray area” conditions, including multiple concurrent conditions,
  • The “do’s and don’ts” of return-to-work certifications,
  • How to handling suspected FMLA/CFRA abuse without running afoul of the law,
  • How to manage intermittent and reduced-schedule leave,
  • How the FMLA, CFRA, and the ADA interact,
  • And more!

*Attendees of this course will also receive 60-day access to the on-demand recording.
