Are you worried, or at least puzzled and uneasy, when confronted with issues about employee leaves of absence, especially medical leaves? Many employers, especially in California, struggle immensely to get their arms around this important area of employment law.
The confusion, if not outright fear, about leaves of absence may arise from the number of laws, their technical complexity, and the details that must be considered, especially with medical leaves. Adding to the confusion are employee and employer misunderstandings about their respective rights and obligations in granting leave, returning employees from a leave, and steps in between. Further, employees are increasingly prone to file administrative complaints and lawsuits over the alleged denial of their rights regarding leaves of absence, and adverse employment actions (such as termination) during or following a leave of absence.
For these and other reasons, it is critical for employers to have a firm grasp of the leave laws that apply to their workplace, how to properly administer leave of absence policies, and how to best assess the risks of actions they take, such as denying a leave, or taking adverse employment action after an employee has exercised leave rights.
Join Allen Kato, Associate with Fenwick & West LLP, as he covers the essential elements of California and federal leave laws that apply to California employees, how to effectively administer leave of absence policies to stay in legal compliance, and how to properly assess situations to reduce, if not eliminate, the risks of legal claims for alleged violations of leave laws.
