Dan Prokott Discusses California’s Expanded Leave Requirements With SHRM

In an article titled “California’s Expanded Family and Medical Leave Requirements Have Taken Effect,” the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) spoke to labor and employment partner Dan Prokott about employers’ responses to employees’ requests for time off following the expansion of the California Family Rights Act.

“California employers may require a certification that includes the date the serious health condition commenced, the anticipated duration of the serious health condition and a statement that the employee is unable to perform one or more essential job functions,” Prokott said.

Regarding action steps, Prokott stated, “For employers with employees in many states, including California, it is advisable for the employer to develop a California-specific employee handbook or supplement to the employer’s core handbook that addresses certain California-specific requirements, including a policy that informs employees in California of their rights under the CFRA.”
