California Leave Laws: Master ADA/FEHA, FMLA/CFRA, and Workers' Comp

Listen Now!

HR Quick Quiz: An employee slips and falls at work. You know that workers' comp applies. And as his rehabilitation continues, you start trying to figure out when FMLA/CFRA kick in -- or maybe they already have.

And when the employee calls you and asks for a reasonable accommodation to return to work, ADA and FEHA are added to the already complicated mix.

So how can you be sure you're applying the correct California and federal laws -- and in the correct order? You want to stay in compliance, as well as be sensitive to your employees' needs, but you also don't want to keep approving leave if it's not appropriate.
