COMPLEX STATE AND FEDERAL LEAVE LAWS REQUIRE SOPHISTICATED EXPERTISE

Various California and federal laws provide eligible employees with protected leave for qualifying purposes. Covered California employers must comply with all California and federal leave laws in the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

 

Sometimes these laws overlap or intertwine, with each other or with other laws such as those relating to disabilities. Additionally, the laws have numerous and differing requirements and applications.

CLAIM DEFENSE CAN BE INTRICATE

These complexities raise many questions, such as:

  • Are all employees eligible for protected leave? How is eligibility determined?
  • What health conditions or family circumstances qualify an employee for statutory leave?
  • What issues must an employer consider when an employee has exhausted his/her leave but is not certified to return to work?

Leave administration can be a minefield, and claim defense can be intricate. Employers need a partner and advocate with in-depth, detail-oriented knowledge and experience, which Hudock Law provides.

CASE STUDY

HIGHLY FAVORABLE RESOLUTION OF PREGNANCY LEAVE CLAIM

Mr. Hudock represented a public service agency in pre-litigation handling of a claim and potential lawsuit regarding a pregnancy leave. Recently, the same organization had been through a trial where the facts were very similar. In the previous case, there was a multimillion-dollar verdict in favor of the employee.

 

The agency was extremely concerned about the new case, which had the potential to inflict as much monetary damage as the previous case. Though not yet a lawsuit, the potential was there.

 

Mr. Hudock’s successful negotiation with the employee’s attorney resulted in a five-figure settlement—an efficient and very favorable result for the organization, particularly compared against expensive litigation and the potential of a multimillion-dollar settlement or judgment.
