California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Clarification. They said I could not take family leave at all. Whether protected job or not protected. That is inaccurate correct? And to reiterate what you said. I can take family leave but job is unprotected.? To be protected I need to be there 12 months when I take the leave.? I made it very clear to them and have evidence that they are lying to me, is there any recourse or liablility to them?
They said I cannot take any type of family leave for bonding as I have not been there for a year.
We just had a baby January 7th, 2013, I wanted the family leave for bonding with a new child as a dad. 6 weeks is what i did before.
I can do that but job not protected correct?
You are saying they are correct. My question was they said " cannot take Family Bonding time under 12 months> You are saying they are right. But then you say I can but my job is not protected. If i don't care about protection of job, then I can go on Family Leave(assuming I qualify with the State).?
