CalChamber Webinar Breaks Down Pregnancy, Child Bonding Leaves

Next Thursday, CalChamber employment law experts will explain the rules surrounding pregnancy and child bonding leaves so employers can seamlessly administer them.

Of the roughly 420,000 babies are born each year in California, many are born to workers for employers across the state. Although news that an employee is expecting a new bundle of joy can bring excitement to the workplace, it also means the employer must prepare for that employee to take one or more protected leaves of absence, either during the pregnancy or after the birth of the child — or possibly both.

Then, beyond providing the correct leave, employers must navigate complex rules pertaining to such issues as compensation, benefits and reinstatement during that employee’s protected leave(s).

The “Pregnant Pause – Providing Pregnancy and Child Bonding Leaves” webinar will discuss all the rules and leaves that employers have to know, including:

  • Returning employees to work following exhaustion or expiration of their leaves;
  • Case studies involving requests to use PDL, CFRA and FMLA; and
