  • Job Termination during pregnancy related disability California

    Hello,

    My wife has complication in pregnancy and that's why doctor has advised to take extended time off ( 4-1/2 months post delivery). Since she was less than 1 year with company, she can take CA PDL only for her disability. There is job protection for 4 months in PDL, so employer is terminating her job after 4 months and refuse to provide any options.
    Can we do something about it ?

    Please advise,

    Thanks

    Pregnancy Disability Leave-(under Fair Employment & Housing Act)
    An employer must provide up to four months disability leave for a woman who is **disabled** due to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition. (subject to med. cert.) However, if an employer provides more than four months of leave for other types of temporary disabilities, the same leave must be made available to women who are disabled due to pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition. The PDL is job protected leave.

    Since she doesn't meet the requirements for FMLA/CFRA, her employer does not have to allow any additional time off.

    Sorry.

      Will she qualify for CFRA at her one year anniversary? If so, when is the anniversary?

        Good questions above. When will she meet her one year anniversary? Will she qualify for CFRA at that time - will she have worked for her employer for 1,250 hrs. prior to that time, does her employer have 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius?

        Thanks. Betty3
