Parents get time off

California law requires that employers allow employees who are parents to take time off to attend school activities.

It is hard enough when a household has both parents working, but when they have to juggle working and attending school activities, not to mention staying home when your child is sick, it can become stressful.

California’s Family-School Partnership Act, requires employers with 25 or more employees to provide their employees who have children with up to 40 hours a year to participate in school-related activities.

If you are a parent and want to attend a school-type activity and your employer is not allowing you or not paying you to do so, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who will investigate for you and protect your rights as an individual and parent.
