The California Family Rights Act (CFRA) was passed in 1993 and is administered by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The CFRA works with the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to guarantee employees a certain amount of unpaid annual leave for medical reasons, the birth or adoption of a child, exigencies related to a family member's active-duty military service, or caring for a relative who suffered serious injuries or illnesses during military service. In 2015, California amended the CFRA to clarify aspects of the law that were uncertain and to align it more closely with the FMLA.
It is important for California employers to undergo California Family Rights Act compliance training to become familiar with their obligations and the rights of employees under the CFRA for two reasons. First, an organization that knows the eligibility requirements and reinstatement policies will be able to minimize the disruption caused by employees who must be absent from work for family or medical reasons. Second, failing to abide by the provisions of the CFRA can expose an organization to significant financial and legal liability.

Conduct Risk Suite
The eight courses in the Conduct Risk Suite familiarize employees with the various areas of a firm’s culture and operations that present a conduct risk — the risk that customers and clients will suffer detriment as a result of the firm’s inappropriate business culture or inappropriate judgment in the execution of its business activities — and identify ways to mitigate this risk. Combatting conduct risk requires encouraging ethical behavior from all individuals associated with the firm and at all stages of the firm’s business operations, including the following areas covered in the Conduct Risk Suite: customer outcomes, conflicts of interest, culture and tone from the top, recordkeeping, hiring and onboarding, whistleblowing and personal liability concerns.
