IBI members occasionally request information about disability leaves that is not included in the standard benchmarking reports. When IBI can provide an answer that may be of interest to other members, we make the results available in a series of analytic findings.
The second in this series finds that FMLA leave durations for hospital employees in California (CA) tend to be shorter than leaves for hospital employees elsewhere. The exception to this pattern is that leaves taken continuously to care for a family member tend to be longer in CA than elsewhere. Because continuous leaves make up a majority of leaves, overall leave durations to care for family members are longer in CA than elsewhere.
