Teachers in California will no longer need to work 1250 hours per hour to qualify for Paid Maternity/Paternity Leave

With the passage of Assembly Bill 2393, the California Legislature removed the 1250 hour work year requirement for teachers seeking to be paid differential pay (the difference between a teacher's regular salary and the salary of the substitute hired to replace that teacher) during that teacher's 12 weeks of California Family Rights Act leave.  The law goes into effect January 1, 2017.  For more information, click here: http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160AB2393
