FAMILY CARE & MEDICAL LEAVE & PREGNANCY DISABILITY LEAVE Under the California Family Rights Act of 1993 you may have a right to a family care or medical leave for the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of your child or for your own serious health condition or that of your child, parent or spouse. California law also prohibits employers from denying or interfering with requests for Pregnancy Disability Leave.

Even if you are not eligible for CFRA or NPLA leave, if you are disabled by pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition, you are entitled to take a pregnancy disability leave of up to four months, depending on your period(s) of actual disability. If you are CFRA or NPLA-eligible, you have certain rights to take BOTH a pregnancy disability leave and a CFRA or NPLA leave for reason of the bi rth of your child. Both leaves contain a guarantee of reinstatement-for pregnancy disability it is to the same position and for CFRA or NPLA it is to the same or a comparable position- at the end of the leave, subject to any defense allowed under the law. If possible, you must provide at least 30 days’ advance notice for f oreseeable e vents (such as the e xpected birth of a child or a planned medical treatment for yourself or o f a family member). For events that are unforeseeable, we need you to notify us, at least verbally , as soon as you learn of the ne ed for the leave. Failure t o comply with these no tice rules is grounds fo r, and may result in, deferral of the re quested leave until you comply with this notice policy . We ma y require ce rtification from your health care provider before allo wing you a leave f or pregnancy disability or f or your own serious health condition. We also ma y require certification from the health care pr ovider of your chi ld, parent or spou se, who has a serious health condition, before allowing you a leave to take care of that family member. When medi cally necessary, leave may be taken on an intermittent or reduced w ork schedule. If you are taking a leave f or the birth, adoption, or f oster care placement of a child, the basic minimum duration of the leave is two weeks, and y ou must conclude the le ave within one y ear of the bir th or placement for ado ption or foster care.
