California's Paid Family Leave (CA PFL) program enables California workers to take paid leave to care for a seriously ill family member or to bond with a new child (through birth, adoption, or foster care).
Employers with employees taking CA PFL typically have increased costs such as training current staff as well as hiring new or temporary workers to cover for employees on leave. To help offset some of these increased costs, the California Economic Development Department, the State administrative agency for CA PFL, recently announced a new grant program for small employers with employees taking CA PFL on or after June 1, 2022.
CA PFL provides partial wage replacement payments for up to eight weeks to eligible employees who need to take time off work to:
The grant program period is from June 1, 2022 to May 31, 2024. Employers with employees who took CA PFL on or after June 1, 2022 may apply.
Note that small businesses using a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) for payroll services are not eligible for the CA PFL grant program.
