SB 1383: California Family Rights Act | Complimentary Zoom Webinar on December 10, 2020

California Senate Bill (SB) 1383 has been signed into law by Governor Newsom. It will significantly expand the application of the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and its family and medical leave entitlements to all public sector employers and those private sector employers with 5 or more employees.  Until now, CFRA only applied to employers with 50 or more employees.  In addition, SB 1383 also expands the qualifying reasons to take CFRA leave and eliminates previous restrictions on the use of such leave that distinguish it further from its federal law counterpart – the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).  SB 1383 is effective on January 1, 2021. Attached for your review an Employment Law Guidance regarding SB 1383 to help you understand its impact on your business operations.

If you have any questions on this new law or if we can be of assistance in updating policies and procedures to implement the new law, please feel free to contact us.

To assist smaller employers with less than 50 employees who have not been previously covered under the CFRA leave law, Boutin Jones is also offering a complimentary Zoom webinar on Thursday, December 10, 2020, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to outline the basics of CFRA leave, provide a general overview of how it will apply in the workplace, and answer questions.  Additional information on this webinar is noted in the attached Employment Law Guidance.  You can register for the webinar online at:  Boutin Jones CFRA Webinar
