SB 406 has been introduced by Senator Jackson to change family leave in California. Currently, employees of businesses with 50 or more employees can take 12 weeks of unpaid leave every 12 months for
- Bonding with a child
- Care for parent, spouse or sick child
- Employee’s own health issues
This bill would expand these rights to employees of businesses with 5 or more employees. It would also redefine family members to include
- Child of domestic partner
- Grandparent, grandchild or sibling

Small Business California has sent a support letter for AB 525, the CA Franchise Relations Act. Introduced by Assembly member Holden and Speaker Atkins, this bill would amend the California Franchise Relations Act to protect the investment and well-being of franchisees against unfair practices by franchisors. In effect, this is leveling the playing field in the relationship between franchisors and franchisees. This bill was vetoed by the Governor last year. Our partners in this effort is SEIU.
