Leave of Absence Types
Those who operate businesses in California already know that in certain situations, employees are allowed legally protected leaves of absence from work. A variety of laws govern leaves of absence for reasons related to disability, pregnancy, family and medical leaves of absence, and workers’ compensation. Failure to properly handle leaves of absence can put a business at risk for a lawsuit because leaves of absence entitlements can create tricky legal questions that may include:
- How long is the leave of absence?
- Is the leave paid or unpaid?
- Should multiple leaves of absence run concurrently or consecutively?
- Will the job be held open until the employee returns?
According to the California Chamber of Commerce, California provides workers with more legally protected leaves of absence than any other state in the nation, so California businesses have more exposure to mistakes. Coast Employment Law can help; we are business owners too, so we share your concerns.
