WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR CALIFORNIA FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE?
Who is eligible for California family and medical leave we touched about in our last post?
An employee must have worked for a covered employer for at least 12 months and must have worked for 1,250 hours in the 12 months before the start of the leave.
The employee must also work at a worksite where 50 or more employees are employed by the employer within 75 miles of that worksite.
An employee may take up to 12 workweeks of family/medical leave in a 12-month period. He/she may take all 12 weeks at once, or may take leave in shorter increments of hours, days or weeks.
An employee may take up to 26 weeks per 12-month period to care for an ill or injured service member under the FMLA.
