FMLA

FMLA Family Medical Leave Act

 

 

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) guarantees employees the right to up to 12 work weeks of unpaid job-protected leave in a 12-month period for specific medical and family-related reasons. With significant regulations and requirements, FMLA administration is time consuming, costly, and complicated. Our cutting-edge TASC FMLA helps employers limit risk, reduce workload, and save time.

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) (federal) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) (state) are leave laws that allow you to take unpaid leave from your job to care for yourself, family members who are ill, or children who are unable to take care of themselves. Paid Family Leave (PFL) is completely separate from FMLA and CFRA. PFL provides up to six weeks of paid benefits to you when you have a wage loss when taking time off work to care for a seriously ill family member or bond with a new child.

Note: Effective July 1, 2020, PFL extends the total claim timeframe from six weeks to eight weeks. PFL provides working Californians the ability to take time off work to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child.

Individuals may choose to delay filing their PFL claim until July 1, 2020, or after to receive the extended leave benefit.

For more information about the FMLA, visit the Department of Labor or call 1-866-487-2365. For more information about the CFRA, visit the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing or call 1-800-884-1684.

 

  • Am I required to take leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act and California Family Rights Act at the same time I am receiving Paid Family Leave benefits?

Yes. If your employer is subject to the provisions of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA), they may require you to take FMLA and/or CFRA leave at the same time as Paid Family Leave. Visit the Department of Labor for more information about the FMLA and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing for more information about the CFRA.

 

  • Does Paid Family Leave protect my job when I am receiving benefits?

No. Paid Family Leave does not provide job protection. It provides partial wage replacement when you cannot work due to the need to care for a child, parent, parent-in-law, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, spouse, or registered domestic partner, or to bond with a new child. You may have your job protected under other laws, such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the California Family Rights Act (CFRA).
