FMLA leave and California labor laws
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is covered under the California labor laws. This act states that you must be allowed to take up to 12 weeks per year of unpaid time off if you have a serious illness, if you need to care for a sick family member or if you need to care for a new child. Your employer must have at least 50 employees within a 75-mile radius to be obligated to follow this law.
Employers duty to accommodate disabilities under California labor laws
Per federal and state regulations, employers must accommodate disabilities for their employees. Any violation of the rule can be grounds for litigation under California labor laws. This rule states that there must be reasonable accommodations, such as wheelchair ramps, lower workstations or software available for visual or audio disabilities.
