The employment law experts at the California Chamber of Commerce field more than 1,600 calls on workplaces issues a month. And that’s on top of the inquiries sent their way at human resources seminars and other events. In this episode of The Workplace podcast, CalChamber Executive Vice President and General Counsel Erika Frank, and CalChamber employment law experts Bianca Saad and Matthew Roberts discuss the most common HR questions they are asked concerning medical leaves of absence.
One of the most common questions Roberts gets from large employers is on the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA). The laws require employers to provide employees with job-protected and unpaid leave for qualified medical and family reasons.
