§ 11088. Right to CFRA Leave: Denial of Leave; Reasonable Request.
(a) It is an unlawful employment practice for a covered employer to refuse to grant, upon reasonable request, a CFRA leave to an eligible employee.
(b) Denial of leave.
(1) Burden of proof.
Denial of a request for CFRA leave is established if the Department or the employee shows, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the employer was a covered employer, the employee making the request was an eligible employee, the request was for a CFRA-qualifying purpose, the request was reasonable, and the employer denied the request for CFRA leave.
(2) Reasonable request.
A request to take a CFRA leave is reasonable if it complies with any applicable notice requirements, as specified in section 11091, and if it is accompanied, where required, by a certification, as that term is defined in section 11087(a).
