Helping employees maximize their potential


As you may be aware, the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) is being amended effective January 1, 2023, to permit employees to take protected leave to care for a “designated person” with a serious health condition. Please see the Guidance Regarding CFRA and Family and Medical Leave (FML) forms, which reflect these changes. The updated forms are available online here. Please share this information with all employees in your department who play a role in administering FML. 

The Family and Medical Leave Fact Sheet has been updated to reflect the changes to CFRA, and the updated version will be online on January 1. The FML provisions in collective bargaining agreements will be updated to reflect the CFRA changes when successor agreements are negotiated. 

For Reference: PPSM 2.210: Absence from Work

Please note: Central HR will provide an “in-person” briefing and Q&A session on the changes in January.
