In a recent development related to family and medical leave, California Governor Gavin Newsom had signed SB-1383 into law on 17, Sept, 2020 – a move that allowed a significant expansion of employee entitlement to family and medical leave. According to the Newsom’s office it was estimated that about six million additional workers in the state would have access to job-protected leave. According to the law, the employers with five or more employees should grant up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during any 12-month period. The law will become effective from 1, Jan, 2021.
