What it is: Disability insurance representing 55% of an employee’s salary capped at $728 a week that would cover up to six weeks paid family leave after the birth or adoption of a new baby or the serious illness of a spouse or domestic partner. Legislation highlights: *Employees, rather than employers, will fund the state program. *Most California workers will pay an additional $27 each year. For those who earn $65,000 or more, the cost would be capped at $52. *To screen out fraudulent claims, the law requires a worker to first use up two weeks of vacation time and to provide verification that no other family member can act as caretaker. *To be eligible, the employee must also obtain written certification from a physician. Any employee found guilty of perjury, a felony, could be charged with defrauding the state. *To protect small businesses, companies that employ fewer than 50 workers would not be expected to grant any job protection. Their employees would only be eligible for the state’s six-week paid leave. *Workers at companies that employ more than 50 workers, however, would be eligible for the state’s six-week paid leave, plus six weeks of unpaid leave under federal law, which also protects their jobs.
