Article publication date: 1 August 2001
Outlines the eligibility criteria within the California Family Rights Act, before considering the rights to which eligible individuals are entitled. Suggests that employers must keep themselves informed regarding eligibility and what constitutes a serious health condition. Concludes that failure to do so could result in an employee seeking civil action with unlimited compensatory damages for emotional injury and punitive damages.
