The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing has revised its mandatory poster informing employees of their rights under the California Family Rights Act, the Pregnancy Disability Leave law, and the “New Parent Leave Act,” which applies to smaller employers that are not covered by the CFRA. The poster may be found here.
The New Parent Leave Act took effect in January 2018. The text of the law is here. It applies to employers of 20-49 employees. It mainly extends the CFRA’s leave requirements to these smaller employers, but only the leaves for baby bonding, adoption, or placement of a child in foster care. The DFEH has been in the process of developing regulations for implementing the NPLA, but they have been delayed. In the meantime, please talk with your employment lawyer if you think this law may apply to your business.
