Employees must use their sick leave while on a FMLA/CFRA leave due to your own or an eligible family member's serious health condition. When sick leave is exhausted, employees are required to utilize all leave balances (i.e. vacation, floating holiday, CTO, etc.) for the duration of the leave or until his/her leave balances have been exhausted. Once the balances have been exhausted the employee will be placed in an unpaid status for the duration of the approved leave.
When taking leave under CFRA to bond with your healthy newborn, adopted, or foster care child, you will be required to utilize all leave balances (except sick leave).
