I work in CA and my employer headquarters (including HR) in is OR. I qualified for FMLA/CRFA.
I'm current on maternity leave. I emailed my return to work date with 30 day notice to HR.
Two weeks later my HR responded that my CFRA had expired over a month ago. They did not give me any notice of this, however our dates do not align.
HR says CFRA begins the date my baby was born.
From all I have read and researched, CRFA begins when SDI ends.
Who is correct?
Baby was born 3/19/16 by natural birth so I received 6 weeks of SDI, then 6 weeks of PFL (which is CFRA would begin) followed by 6 weeks of unpaid leave with protection under CFRA. So I would have job protection under CRFA until 7/23/16, correct?
Also, let's say she is correct and my CFRA expired June 11 (which is what she is saying) does she legally have to give me some kind of notice?
Thank you in advance.
