Std/maternity leave

Thank you for your reply. I have a few more questions please.I am trying to understand the law completely. Am I required (withonly 3 emplyees) to follow the FMLA/CFRA rules? If I understand completely for an employee to qualify for FMLA doesnt the employer have to have more than 5 employees? Or is it 50? And does CFRA protect your job? Thank you for your time.

California Family Right Act only needs to be followed for private-sector employers who employed fifty (50) or more employees in twenty (20) or more workweeks in the current or preceding calendar year and who are engaged in commerce or in any industry or activity affecting commerce including joint employers and successors of covered employers. Therefore if you have fifty (50) or more employee you need to offer CFRA.

The U.S. federal Family Medical Leave Act, states that private employers with at least fifty (50) employees are required to offer FMLA.

Since you only have three (3) employees you are not required to follow FMLA or CFRA. Both CFRA and FMLA require that employers protect employee jobs.
