Earning a living shouldn’t deprive you of the ability to live. Many of life’s milestones and unknowns require time off. You should not have to sacrifice your job for parenthood, pregnancy, medical treatment or other life events.
Employees in California have the right to job protection under many of these circumstances. Key laws that define your rights may include:
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which grants up to 12 weeks of leave for pregnancy, childbirth, adoption or medical care
- The California Family Rights Act (CFRA), which extends FMLA to same-sex couples and establishes greater privacy protections
- The Pregnancy Disability Leave law (PDL), which provides up to four months of disability leave for pregnancy or childbirth
These laws grant important rights to both men and women.
