LEAVE DURING COVID-19
EMPLOYMENT LAWS PROTECT CALIFORNIA LEAVE RIGHTS DURING THE PANDEMIC
The sudden change in our work lives caused by COVID-19 has employees wondering about their right to take leaves. You have the right to take time away from work whether it is because you have contracted COVID-19 or need leave for some other valid reason such as caring for an ill relative.
Many employers are facing a surge in worker leave requests. Whether they are doing it intentionally or not, employers are illegally denying employees paid leaves they are legally entitled to take. If you or a family member has COVID-19 in Southern California and you have legal concerns, call our employment attorneys at Diefer Law Group.
If you were illegally denied a leave, you have legal options.
