Why are people so pissed off about the state of Arizona taking a hard stance in enhancing and enforcing an existing federal law? Before all of you democrats start calling me a republican, please refer to my article about Religion.
This is a step in the right direction, not in the sense that the bill is bringing something new to the table, but that the bill is just reminding us to “do what we say and say what we do”.
Well, before we get in too deep, this article is only going to cover the “maternity” aspect of these two regulations, not the “health condition” aspect. For those of you outside of California, CFRA is basically the California edition of the Federal FMLA so for the purposes of this article, I am only going to be discussing the common aspect of the regulation: employees have the right to be on unpaid leave for up to 12 work-weeks during any 12-months period and the employers MUST grant the leave. This means the employer must allow the employee to return to the same or equal position when the employee returns to work within 12 workweeks.
