  • Paid Fam Leave after losing a job California

    Hi All,

    I have about 4 weeks of Paid Family Leave left. I have a 10 month old baby and just got let go from a job.

    Should I be filing for UI or can I finish the PFL and then apply for UI?

    ... I do wish I had a job to go to tomorrow instead

    File for unemployment now.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Your post is a bit unclear if you were currently on leave or not.

      Just remember that in part to,qualify for UC you must be available and searching,for work ..and not have been let go,for some misconduct.

        It doesn't matter if you are on leave or not. If you are unemployed, you would file for unemployment benefits. If unable to work (though 10 months later that should not be the case) PFL/SDI may still cover.

          Agree, if you are no longer employed/were let go from your job, file for UI at this time. I am assuming you are able to work.

            OP, let me ask you this:

            Why were you let go from your job?

            Were you currently on leave? (not clear from your post)

            Were you covered under any job protected leave such as CFRA (12 weeks of job protected leave in 12 month period for bonding with new child)? You can be terminated though if you would have been terminated anyway had you not taken CFRA leave.

            Even while out on PFL (without CFRA applying), you can be job protected in Ca. under pregnancy/bonding public policy protection & generally can't be terminated just for taking PFL.

            Thanks.
