California Family Rights Act Amendments Now in Effect

Effective July 1, 2015, amendments to the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) have gone into effect which increase an employer’s duties and rights under the CFRA and clarify the regulations. Many of the changes are aimed at more closely aligning the CFRA with the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which should make compliance with both sets of regulations simpler for California employers.
