The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), the administrative agency charged with enforcing the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), has released new documentation for Family and Medical Leave that reflects the expansion of CFRA which went into effect on January 1, 2021.

These new documents include the required poster for employers for both Family and Medical Leave as well as for Pregnancy Disability Leave.

Employers should be sure to update their posters and new hire and leave packets to include the revised information, in addition to relevant company policies and procedures pertaining to leave.

If employers need additional guidance regarding compliance with California leave laws, they can contact a Jackson Lewis attorney to discuss.
