Discrepancy between California Family Leave Act and FMLA

Sacramento, CA: A new study published by Forbes suggests that although employees in California have access to paid family leave, few employees are using it. A major reason for that discrepancy could be that although California’s Family Temporary Disability Insurance (FTDI) allows for paid family leave, it does not offer job protection for workers who take the leave. That protection is offered by the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), but those acts only apply to certain employees who are on unpaid leave.
