Employee Leave Laws - Paid Family Leave (PFL), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA)

The FMLA (federal) and CFRA (California) are leave laws that allow an employee to take unpaid leave from a job to care for oneself, a family member who is ill, or children who are unable to take care of themselves. PFL does not change either law and is separate from both the FMLA and CFRA. PFL provides up to 6 weeks of partial pay to workers who take time off to bond with a new child or to care for a seriously ill family member.

What family and medical leaves are available to California employees?

California offers several different options for employees who need to take a family or medical leave. Each type of leave offers different benefits and/or levels of protection. Below we have provided a brief overview of some of the major programs available to California employees.

Can employees be fired for taking additional leave beyond FMLA or CFRA limits?

The short answer is no, but employers frequently get this wrong. Many large corporations have policies that require termination of employees after their twelve weeks of leave is over, but the employee still needs more time to heal before returning to work. Illegal application by employers of set leave limit policies can result in a wrongful termination.
