Extension of Paid Family Leave Benefits

On June 27, 2019, Gov. Newsome signed AB 83 into law. Under existing law, eligible employees may receive up to six weeks of benefits under the state’s Paid Family Leave program for an absence from work following the birth (or placement) of a new child or due to care for a family member. Under the new law, the duration of benefits is extended from six weeks to eight weeks effective July 1, 2020.
