During termination the employee claims that his/her poor performance is due to alcoholism and claims that under CA law the company must give the employee time off for rehabilitation. Is this true?

| 07/04/2017 |

No. Employers with 25 or more employee are required to reasonably accommodate employees who voluntarily come forward and ask their employers for time off for rehabilitation prior to a disciplinary action. (Labor Code § 1025) Once time off is granted as an accommodation, however, employers are not required to continue this accommodation time after time.
