2018 California Employment Leave Update: New Paid Family Leave Benefit Increase And More

Description:

Effective January 1, 2018, California employees will be entitled to up to 70 percent of their wages while out on paid family leave, based on where their salaries fall in relation to the average quarterly wage. And there will no longer be a one-week waiting period for filing PFL claims. From a practical standpoint, the increase in benefits could mean more employees will take the full six weeks of PFL to which they’re entitled.

That means you’ve got to be on top of how to accurately designate, track, and manage your PFL program. You also need to be sure you’ve got a firm grasp on other applicable state and local leave laws, including CFRA, paid sick leave, kin care, pregnancy disability leave, and more.

Join us on when two seasoned California-based employment attorneys will update you on what’s new for 2018 and how to legally manage your obligations when it comes to administering paid and unpaid leave here in California.

You’ll learn:

  • Important updates for 2018 concerning California’s paid family leave law benefits, waiting periods, and exemptions
  • Tips for managing state disability insurance (SDI) and paid family leave (PFL) here in California with relative ease
  • How to comply with the state’s paid sick leave and kin care laws
  • Leave-tracking strategies that work for managing your obligations under California’s PDL
  • Additional requirements that may apply based on where you operate or where your employees live—such as San Francisco’s Family
  • Friendly Workplace Ordinance
  • How PDL, CFRA/FMLA, paid sick leave, and other leave laws interact
  • And much more, including practical examples of how leave- and benefits-related laws affect the obligations of small and mid-size California employers.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
