Under previous California law, businesses with 50 or less employees were not required to provide parental leave. SB 63 supports working mothers and fathers by requiring employers with 20 or more employees to provide most employees up to 12 weeks of paid parental leave to bond with a new child within one year of the child’s birth, adoption, or foster care placement. (This bill is now law.)
