Protected Leaves

The County of Los Angeles provides leaves to protect eligible employees that experience medical problems themselves or within their families. These unpaid leaves include: the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), California Family Rights Act (CFRA), and Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL). These leaves promote the stability and economic security of families, and demonstrate the County’s interest in preserving the integrity of families.
