Leave Laws

Leave Laws
The Workforce Development Board of Contra Costa County (WDBCCC) in partnership with the California Employers Association (CEA), is sponsoring the "Leave Laws" webinar, on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, at 12:00 pm (noon). There is no cost to this webinar.

California Leave Laws are confusing! With over 20 different leave laws and the FFCRA ePSL and eFMLA, how do you know if your company has to provide the leave and/or which of your employees are eligible to take time off work? As employees come back to work after and during quarantine, how do you know what leave someone is eligible to take and how do you document and apply the time off accurately?

After the webinar, you will have a clear understanding of:

• Leave and time off laws governing employers: Pregnancy, Personal Leaves, FFCRA ePSL and eFMLA, Domestic Violence, School Suspension, School Activities, and more...)
• Who is eligible
• Employee’s rights under the law
• Notice requirements
• Effects on PTO, vacation, sick, and wages
• Employer Rights & Responsibilities
