Mandated Reporter
The Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act requires a mandated reporter, which includes a teacher or any other types of school employees, to report whenever he or she has knowledge of or has observed a child whom the mandated reporter knows or reasonably suspects has been the victim of child abuse or neglect.

Leave of Absence
Requests for leave must be submitted to your direct supervisor/director & Human Resources using the Request for Leave of Absence Form. If both parties mutually agree, an employee may return from leave prior to the previously stated return date.  If the leave is under FMLA/CFRA, CVCHS reserves the right to verify that absences comply with FMLA/CFRA guidelines.

No leave will be considered an interruption in the continuity of service. An employee on a leave, paid or unpaid, for one (1) school year or less shall be returned to the same assignment held prior to the beginning of the leave, if that assignment still exists. If the assignment does not exist, the employee shall be given a similar assignment. The parties shall maintain a list of temporary employees hired to fill the assignment of employees on leave pursuant to this section. (See link below for Day-to-Day Absence Policy)

The FMLA and CFRA both require employers to provide time off for personal illness, to attend to the illness of a family member and in connection with the birth or adoption of a child. Though this sounds simple, FMLA and CFRA issues are among the most litigated of all employment law cases and can result in large liabilities. Federal and California family and medical leave laws provide eligible employees with the equivalent of up to 12 weeks per year for:

  • Bonding with a newborn, adopted child, or child placed for foster care
  • Caring for a family member with a serious health condition
  • The employee's own serious health condition
  • A qualifying exigency relating to a close family member's military service (FMLA only)
