Are You Covered Under the CFRA?
Qualifying employees, or those with over 1,250 work hours for the last year and working for an employer with more than five employees, deserve protection under the CFRA. CFRA protections give you the right to take up to three months off for serious medical events with the expectation of being able to return to your old job.
You may have a right to CFRA coverage if you experienced any of the following events:
- Serious health conditions (personal)
- Serious health conditions (family members)
- Birth of a child
- Adoption of a child
Employers must work with you in good faith if you are requesting time off under the CFRA. They must also avoid retaliatory tactics when you request leave or file a claim over their illegal denial of your request. Hire a San Francisco CFRA attorney at The Armstrong Law Firm to protect your rights and job when facing this type of employment discrimination, harassment, or hostility
