The Santa Clara County Employer Advisory Council in partnership with the Employment Development Department presents

"California and Federal Leave of Absence Laws”

Speaker: Jenn Protas, Hoge Fenton Attorneys.
Location: Biltmore Hotel and Suites - Santa Clara
Date: Tuesday, April 25, 2017
Time: 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. – Registration and networking starts at 11:30 a.m. Program starts at 12:00 p.m. This is a luncheon seminar.

About the Seminar:
Complying with leave laws is challenging, and with the recent patchwork of varying state and municipal paid sick leave laws, the landscape has become even more complex.
In this interactive session, you will learn about the various California and Federal leaves of absence to which employees are entitled and how to evaluate the interaction between those leaves. Through hypothetical scenarios and Hoge Fenton’s Leaves of Absence flow chart, we will help make this complicated area of the law easier to manage.
The focus of this employment seminar will include:
• Coordination of state, federal, and city-specific leave laws (FMLA, CFRA, PDL, WC, SDI, PFL, etc.)
• How paid sick leave works for employers with multiple offices or remote employees
How “reasonable accommodation” requirements under FEHA/ADA can extend job protection beyond FMLA/CFRA
