  • California - PDA state equivalency

    My employer is in CA and has 60 employees. What laws and benefits apply to me, a longterm, full-time, pregnant employee during my pregnancy and afterwards? Any help would be great. Ciao!

    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, some women will not qualify for the total 7 mos.

    In order to get FMLA/CFRA (for bonding) you have to meet the requirements: Your employer has 50 or more employees within a 75 mile radius of where you work (50 or more employees for each working day during each of 20 or more calendar workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year), you have worked for your employer for at least 12 mos. (do not have to be consecutive) & you have worked for your employer at least 1250 hrs. in the 12 mos. immediately preceding the leave.

    You should also be eligible for Ca. State Disability Income benefits (while you are off on Ca Pregnancy Disability Leave). This is not leave - just income while you are off on leave & disabled.

    You can also get PFL (*Paid* Family Leave) but only when you get time off/qualify for time off for bonding. This is not actually leave but income while you are off on leave.
