New Law Breakdown: California’s New Parent Leave Act

December 07, 2017  |  From HRCalifornia Extra

For more than 20 years, only employers with 50 or more employees had to provide eligible employees with protected time off to bond with a newborn, or a child placed with the employee for adoption or foster care. That’s because those employers were covered by the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). Both laws give employees the right to take protected time off for certain qualifying reasons, one of which is bonding with a new child.
