Does My Employer Have to Give Me Time Off to Enter Rehab in California?

Does my employer have to give me time off to enter rehab in California

The questions is whether your employer has to give you time off to enter rehab in California.

The answer…

Yes.

In California, employers with 25 or more employees must give unpaid time off to any employee who wants to enter an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program, unless it would pose an undue hardship (an unreasonable burden on the company).

If your employer has at least 25 employees, it must give you time off, allow you to use your accrued sick leave, and protect your privacy by not telling others about the reason behind your time off.

However, once you return from the program, you must be able to perform the duties of your job and must not pose a safety risk to others.
