Managing Leaves of Absence
Employees in California have the legal right to more time off from work for more reasons than employees in any other state. The dizzying array of laws include time off to vote; for medical issues; to care for family; to serve in the military; to serve the community; as a crime victim; to learn to read; to recover from addictions; for jury duty; to bond with children; to attend the school functions of a child; and to donate organs. Moreover, each form of protected leave under the law carries with it detailed regulations and employer mandates. We are leave law experts, and we know how to plan and document leaves in a way that virtually eliminates the potential for liability.
