  • California pregnancy question

    HR/DisMgr,
    Do you know what is the amount of total time, combining all programs available in california that you can take off after the birth of the baby?

    Here is some info on *all* the Ca. pregnancy leaves *if* an employee qualified for all the leaves & qualified for the full amount of time each leave allows:

    In Ca. most female employees can take up to 4 mos. of leave for childbearing & pregnancy related disability (subject to med. certification that an actual disability exists) under the Fair Employment & Housing Act. The fed. FMLA & the state act are generally in alignment except in Ca. a woman can take a 4-mo. pregnancy disability leave followed by a 3-mo. fam. med. leave. This is the rare circumstance when leave under the FMLA & Ca. Fam. Rights Act don't run concurrently--FMLA leave will run concurrently with the 4-mos. of pregnancy disability leave, after which the Fam. Rights Act rights can be invoked for an add'l. 3-mo. leave.
    This is all job-protected leave. However, all women will not qualify for the total 7 mos.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
