California Family Rights Act - What Is It?
The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide eligible employees with time off for certain family and medical reasons.
Among other reasons, employees may take leave under CFRA for a serious medical condition or to bond with a new child. Leave under this Act is unpaid unless the employee qualifies for paid leave through a state program or company policy.
To qualify for CFRA leave, an employee must have worked for a covered employer for at least 12 months and must have worked at least 1,250 hours in the 12 months immediately preceding the leave.
