California: Changes to paid parental leave requirements for certain school districts and community colleges go into effect
January 1, 2019
On September 30, 2018, Gov. Brown signed Assembly Bill 2012. The new law makes changes to the paid parental leave requirements for school districts and community college districts that use certain differential pay systems. Under the prior law, some employees who were on parental leave and who had exhausted their paid sick leave were entitled to receive, for the remainder of the parental leave period, the difference between their salary and the cost of a substitute or temporary replacement. The new law standardized all paid parental leave requirements so that employees, after they had exhausted their paid sick leave, would receive 50% of their salaries for the remainder of the parental leave period.
