California Employment Law
California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
So I read correctly, PDL is separate from FMLA/CFRA. But do both provide "protected" leave from termination? If so which one? My greatest concern is having employment when I return from leave. I will only take the time off work that my employment is protected.
from the document you shared. Would PDL be available after delivery? Basically, could I use up to 7 months AFTER delivery? And how would I request it? And again, would my job be protected for the entire 7 month duration?
given this, do you have to apply for one then the other? And which is generally first?
thank you so much for your help!
