Starting January 1, 2021, a dramatic expansion of the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) requires California employers with a mere five or more employees to grant workers up to 12 weeks unpaid leave per year for family care, medical leave and/or military family leave. The new law repeals and replaces both the existing CFRA and the New Parent Leave Act, which currently apply to employers with at least 50 and 20 employees, respectively. To qualify for leave, an employee must have completed at least one year’s service (including 1,250 hours worked in the preceding 12 months). An employer must reinstate the employee to the same or a comparable position upon termination of the leave.

The Bay Area-wide audience and ability to appear via Zoom enabled us to attract prominent speakers and panelists from around the Bay Area and beyond. With thirteen separate programs over four days, including several panel discussions, program highlights will have to suffice for our recap.

By Susan Feder

Our society and criminal justice system remain plagued by systemic racism and inequality. As much as we know injustice and inequality exist, it is easy to feel powerless in the face of such an overwhelming problem. Videos like the one of George Floyd's murder can reinforce that powerlessness. Or they can spur us to action.
