Family School Partnership Act

Family School Partnership Act

The Family School Partnership Act prohibits large California employers, including the University, from discharging or discriminating against an employee for taking up to 40 hours off work each school year (not to exceed 8 hours in any calendar month) to participate in the school activities of the employee's children who are in kindergarten or grades 1 through 12.  The employee may use vacation, compensatory time off, or leave without pay for this purpose.

On August 2, 1997, Governor Wilson signed legislation that would extend the applicability of the Family School Partnership Act to employees who have custody of a child attending a licensed child day care facility.  The amendments, which become effective on January 1, 1998, also revise the maximum number of hours that may be taken off from 40 hours each "school year" to 40 hours each "year" (i.e., calendar year).
