Understanding Paid Family Leave: A free, bilingual 3-part training webinar for parents, caregivers, organizers, and advocates.

With the declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, the need for paid leave is more apparent than ever.  Yet, there is confusion about who is eligible, how to access these benefits, taking time without risking long-term job loss, and what additional protections and benefits are available now.  

Join the California Work & Family Coalition and the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence to learn about your right to paid leave.  Get practice sharing this information with others in need. Stand up for working families and stay connected to our growing movement.

About the webinars:

Your RSVP will sign you up for ALL 3 webinars in the language you choose.  Webinars will be presented in English each day from 10:00 am - Noon, and in Spanish from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.  Click here to register for the webinar in Spanish.  A reminder and link for each session will be sent to registrants the day before the webinar.  

April 17:  California Paid Family Leave 101.  Learn the impact of paid leave policies on our health, economic security, and other determinants of wellbeing that help families thrive.  Gain a strong foundation in California Paid Family Leave and adjacent laws including job protection, pregnancy disability, lactation accommodations, paid sick days, and more.  (2 CEUs/CERPs)

April 22:  Accessing Paid Leave NOW.  Local, state, and federal policies around paid leave are rapidly changing -  review the latest requirements and protections when taking paid leave. Get hands-on practice educating patients, clients, co-workers, and community members about their rights using our new Paid Family Leave & Paid Sick Days Training Toolkit in Spanish and English.  (2 CEUs/CERPs)

May 5:  Achieving Equity in Paid Leave.  Take the next step in building confidence as an effective advocate and community educator.  We will review best practices in paid leave outreach and education, and how to implement them in your communities.  Paid leave for specific communities, such as new immigrant workers, and issues related to public charge will be addressed.  Practice speaking and sharing resources and tools that help workers access paid leave. Participants will also be invited to connect to a statewide network of folks who are also advocating for equitable and accessible PFL practices, and for regular updates and continued support.  (2 CEUs/CERPs) 

Those who complete all 3 sessions will receive our bilingual Paid Family Leave Training Toolkit in Spanish and English. 

CEUs for RNs and CERPS for IBCLCs will also be available to those who complete all 3 sessions.
