CalChamber to Host Live Webinar on Pregnancy Disability Leave – February 16

California law provides strong protections for pregnant employees, including requiring employers to reasonably accommodate pregnant workers and provide them with Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL).

To help employers understand exactly what to do when they find out a California employee is pregnant, the California Chamber of Commerce is hosting a live webinar on Thursday, February 16 from 10-11:30 a.m.

In this webinar CalChamber’s employment law experts will address some of the more common employer issues:

  • Employee leave rights under PDL;
  • Employers’ obligations to provide reasonable accommodations;
  • Pay and benefits during PDL, including coordination with sick leave, vacation and state disability insurance (SDI);
  • Baby bonding leave rights;
  • Lactation accommodation;
  • Notice and policy requirements;
  • Best practices.

In addition, the webinar purchase includes a recorded version that’s available after the live event.
