Informed Employers Can Help Avoid FMLA/CFRA Lawsuits

California-based employers who employ 50 or more workers face regulations beyond the federal employment laws through the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), which expands employees’ rights under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

If your California company is a covered employer under FMLA and CFRA, the business must have a family and medical leave policy that should include certain specifications. California businesses should know that violating family and/medical leave laws leave the enterprise subject to a civil lawsuit or a civil proceeding, and supervisors may be held personally liable. If you are an employer and have any questions regarding family or medical leave or any other employment law related issue, contacted the knowledgeable attorneys at Garcia & Gurney, ALC.
