On Oct. 11, Governor Gavin Newsom passed Senate Bill 848 which allows work absence for reproductive-related losses. This bill targets those who underwent a failed adoption, failed surrogacy, miscarriage, stillbirth, or an unsuccessful assisted reproduction. Employees are granted no more than 20 days of unpaid leave. SB 848 prohibits employers from retaliating against an employee who requests leave for a reproductive loss. An employer who fails to permit at least five days of leave is considered unlawful employment practice. Eligible employees must request leave within three months of the aforementioned event. 

This new law is set to go into effect on January 1, 2024.
