Berliner Cohen Hosting Seminars: Advanced Course in CA Leaves of Absence

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Complying with leave laws is challenging, and with the recent patchwork of varying state and municipal paid sick leave laws, the landscape has become even more complex.

In this interactive session, you will learn about the various California and Federal leaves of absence to which employees are entitled and how to evaluate the interaction between those leaves. Through hypothetical scenarios Berliner Cohen’s analysis will help make this complicated area of the law easier to manage. The focus of this employment seminar will include:

  • Coordination of state, federal, and city-specific leave laws (FMLA, CFRA, PDL, WC, SDI, PFL, etc.)
  • How “reasonable accommodation” requirements under FEHA/ADA can extend job protection beyond FMLA/CFRA
  • The difference between ADA and FMLA/CFRA
