I incorporated each office separately so I have a total 87 employees if you include all three corporations but the specific entity that this employee works at has 30 employees. She is a full-time manager and has been with me for 3 years. She's good. We are inclined to honor the FMLA request but I think technically we don't have to? Its the additional 6 weeks she is requesting under "California Paid Family Leave Act" that is killing us.
Thank you so much for this detailed answer. Quick clarification. If I understand the language this employee could theoretically take up to 24 weeks right?
So as you read the law it says that I provide 12 weeks under PDLL and an additional 12 weeks if needed. That is far more than 4 months.
