California law requires most employers to provide sick leave and other types of paid and unpaid leave to most employees. An employer in California may be required to provide an employee extended unpaid sick leave in accordance with the California Family Rights Act, Family and Medical Leave Act, or other state and federal laws. Additionally, employers who choose to offer vacation must follow certain guidelines. California employers must be aware of the various rules, regulations and "best practices". While the federal law provides for the minimum benefits an employer must offer, California enhancements often take employers by surprise. Learn the rules governing pregnancy leave, sick leave and other forms of paid or unpaid leave under California law.

Topic Background
In addition to the leave provided by an employer's discretionary policies on vacation time, sick leave, personal days, or paid time off (PTO), an employee may have a legal right to take time off work for specific reasons under federal and California laws. For example, if you are caring for an ailing family member or recovering from childbirth, you may have a right to leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). California has some of the most generous state leave laws in the nation. In California, employees have the right to paid sick days, pregnancy disability leave, time off to attend a child's school activities, domestic violence leave, and more.
