California Maternity and Pregnancy Leave Laws
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) was established to ensure up to 12 weeks' protected leave rights for employees in the following circumstances:
Additionally, employers must provide up to four months' pregnancy disability leave for a woman who is disabled due to pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition. Depending on the individual circumstances of the woman's condition, leave may be taken intermittently, both before and after childbirth. California law specifies that employers must not terminate, refuse to hire, refuse to promote, withhold training from, harass or in other ways retaliate or discriminate against a female employee for taking leave for pregnancy or planning to take leave. If you are concerned that your rights have been violated, you need the advice of a knowledgeable employment law attorney. Trust our experience.
Employers have rights, too. Female employees are required to give a reasonable period of advance notice to their employers for foreseeable leave for pregnancy or pregnancy-related disability.
