Measure proposes changes to Family School Partnership Act

By CMTA Staff

Capitol Update, Feb. 28, 2014

Employers with 25 or more employees working at the same location must allow a parent, custodial grandparent or guardian to take up to 40 hours off per year (with a maximum of eight hours per month) to participate in activities at their child’s school or child care facility. The employee must give reasonable notice to the employer and must first utilize existing vacation, personal leave or compensatory time off for this purpose. This time off is not required to be compensated. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against or discharging an employee who exercises this option.

AB 2030introduced by Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore Nora Campos (D-San Jose), would change this law by eliminating the requirement for an employee to use existing leave, thereby creating a new paid leave obligation with five additional compensated days.

This and other legislation will be discussed further with our Labor and Employment Committee on March 7th. If you’d like to join the call and are a member of CMTA, contact Marisa Hull at MHull@cmta.netor 916-498-3321 for more information.
