June 12 Breakfast Meeting
The "Disabled" Employee: What Laws Apply and a Helpful Perspective From the EDD
As most employers well know, responding to the needs of an injured or ill employee is not always an easy thing to do. Employers often rack their brain over the following questions:
What are the employee’s rights?
What are the employer’s obligations?
Which laws apply to a given situation? Are they different depending on whether the injury or illness is work related or not? Are they different depending on whether or not the employee has been declared "disabled?"
Does a disabled employee have a right to leave or just an accommodation on the job?
If the employee does needs time off from work, is it paid or unpaid and how much "disability" leave can they get?
What do California’s State Disability Insurance (SDI) and Paid Family Leave (PFL) programs provide to employees who need time off from work?
What obligations does the employer have to assist employees in obtaining SDI and/or PFL benefits?
What can the EDD do to help an employer and an employee understand the SDI/PFL claim process?
