Existing law provides for the payment of disability compensation for the wage loss sustained by an individual
unemployed because of sickness or injury, and finances that compensation by means of employee contributions at specified rates to the Disability Fund. This bill instead would provide disability compensation for any individual who is unable to work due to the employee’s own sickness or injury, the sickness or injury of a family member, or the birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a new child.
