Family Leave

Having the ability to take time away from work allows workers to care for their families, deal with an emergency or recuperate from a serious illness with a guaranteed job when they return. This broad topic covers many types of leaves including leaves guaranteed under federal and some state laws such as the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Paid Family Leave (PFL) as well as broader leave terms negotiated through the collective bargaining process. Leaves may be paid or unpaid. Paid leaves may be funded by the employer, by state programs like the state disability insurance, or through an employee’s choice to use accrued sick leave or vacation.
