Even if you are not eligible for CFRA or NPLA leave, if you are disabled by pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition, you are entitled to take a pregnancy disability leave of up to four months, depending on your period(s) of actual disability. If you are CFRA or NPLA-eligible, you have certain rights to take BOTH a pregnancy disability leave and a CFRA or NPLA leave for reason of the bi rth of your child. Both leaves contain a guarantee of reinstatement-for pregnancy disability it is to the same position and for CFRA or NPLA it is to the same or a comparable position- at the end of the leave, subject to any defense allowed under the law. If possible, you must provide at least 30 days’ advance notice for f oreseeable e vents (such as the e xpected birth of a child or a planned medical treatment for yourself or o f a family member). For events that are unforeseeable, we need you to notify us, at least verbally , as soon as you learn of the ne ed for the leave. Failure t o comply with these no tice rules is grounds fo r, and may result in, deferral of the re quested leave until you comply with this notice policy . We ma y require ce rtification from your health care provider before allo wing you a leave f or pregnancy disability or f or your own serious health condition. We also ma y require certification from the health care pr ovider of your chi ld, parent or spou se, who has a serious health condition, before allowing you a leave to take care of that family member. When medi cally necessary, leave may be taken on an intermittent or reduced w ork schedule. If you are taking a leave f or the birth, adoption, or f oster care placement of a child, the basic minimum duration of the leave is two weeks, and y ou must conclude the le ave within one y ear of the bir th or placement for ado ption or foster care.
