  • Does time on maternity leave count for your 1 year employment to be eligible for CFRA

    Hi,
    If you don't make it to your 1 year employment prior to going out on maternity leave (but make the 1 year mark during maternity leave) are you eligible for FMLA and CFRA? Does the time while you are on maternity leave count for the 1 year employment?

    I was told from a friend that while you are on maternity leave, you are still considered an employee. So if you make your 1 year employment while on maternity leave, you should be eligible. Is this true? And does this time count?

    Thanks,
    Jtran

    It's possible to not qualify for FMLA or CFRA when going out on PDL but if you hit your 1 year anniversary while out on leave, you can then qualify for FMLA/CFRA at that time. (if all other requirements for FMLA/CFRA are also met)

      Thank you so much Betty! I'm 1-2 weeks away from my anniversary date and this answer made my day. Thanks again!
