What is the maximum FMLA/CFRA time?

The maximum leave is:

  • Full-time: Up to 12 work weeks during a designated 12-month period
  • Part-time: The equivalent of 12 regularly scheduled work weeks

CFRA allows for parents (both mother and father) to bond with a newborn child, newly adopted child or newly placed foster care child for up to 12 weeks. However, this leave must be concluded within one year of the child's birth or placement in your home if adopted or if a foster child. If both parents work for Placer County this leave is limited to a total of twelve weeks shared between both employees.
