CHANGES TO CALIFORNIA PAID FAMILY LEAVE PAMPHLETS « Law Offices of Timothy Bowles | Top Employment Law Firm in Los Angeles


Employees eligible for California’s Paid Family Leave (PFL) benefits may receive up to six weeks of state-funded partial wage replacement for leaves of absence to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a newborn child.
All California employers are required to provide a PFL pamphlet to all new hires as well as those qualifying employees taking time out from work for baby-bonding or care-giving.

The PFL pamphlet describes the PFL program, outlines employee eligibility criteria, and explains how to apply for benefits.

In May, 2015, the California Employment Development Department (EDD) recently issued two mandatory changes to the pamphlet, including a new government mailing address where employees should submit paid family leave claims and new government phone numbers, including a new number for the hearing impaired. Employers may download the pamphlet as a pdf or purchase it from the California Chamber of Commerce.
