I need medical leave, what are my rights?

A variety of laws apply to employees needing medical leave. For example, the California Family Rights Act and Federal Family Medical Leave Act provide twelve weeks of job-protected leave to qualified employees. Even if you don’t qualify under those laws, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act and the Federal Americans with Disabilities Act may allow you to take leave. If the disability is related to pregnancy, you may be covered under California’s Pregnancy Disability Leave Laws.
