Am I eligible for FML with EDD Ca?

I am full time employed since Sept.1st.2009 with a small company(total 3 employees).

I got my first newborn last month. My Ob helped me to send out the unemployment form last month after I delivered the baby.

I was sooooo overwhelmed by the baby.Between feeding,pumping,changing,cuddlering,sleeping,eating,I found 6weeks unemployment is not enough for me to recover.

Here is the question: Can I apply FML with EDD Ca? Will I be able to get the FML 6weeks?

My concern is that I havn't working for the company for 12 months and the employer is under 15 employees(I was told by a friend that California EDD might not grant FML to small company)

Thank you very much for your help! I do appericate a lot!

A new mom.

  • Call 1-877-238-4373 or visit - that is the agency that offers CA Paid Family Leave and they should be able to give you more info.
