Tool of the Week: Leave Laws Guide

Handling employee requests for time off due to illness or injury can be one of the most difficult–and frustrating–parts of an employer’s job. That’s because a complicated array of state and
federal laws governing family leave, workers’ compensation, and disability discrimination may come into play–each involving different rules, definitions, and obligations. And complying with
one law won’t get you off the hook if an employee sues you under another.

Check out our exclusive CEA Employer Guide, “Leave for Injured and Disabled Workers: How to Navigate the Workers’ Comp, ADA, and FMLA Maze in California” to sort out the complex rules governing workers’ compensation, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act, as well as the California disability and family leave laws. We’ll walk you through some of the most common problems employers grapple with when the laws overlap, and we’ll provide tips on how to deal with them. Finally, we’ve included step-by-step compliance flowcharts you can use to help make sure you’re doing everything right.
