My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California.
Hi, my wife is taking time off to care for our baby when she is born. I would like to take two weeks of PTO time when she is born to stay home and help, and then will return to work. When my wife's leave ends, she will return to work and I will begin my leave to stay home and care for the baby for a couple months.
My employer recently notified me that those initial two weeks of PTO that I will take when the baby is born will count toward my FMLA time. I, however, was under the impression that I could choose when to activate FMLA.
How does this actually work?
