Ques­tion:

How does an employ­ee file for Cal­i­for­nia state dis­abil­i­ty ben­e­fits (SDI) when going on leave in California?

Answer:

The process for fil­ing for Cal­i­for­nia State Dis­abil­i­ty is real­ly up to the employ­ee and the employee’s physi­cian. The employ­er can pro­vide resource infor­ma­tion, but should refrain from tak­ing actu­al action on behalf of the employ­ee. Infor­ma­tion about the process and enroll­ment instruc­tions may be found on the Cal­i­for­nia Employ­ment Devel­op­ment Depart­ment (EDD) web­site at http://www.edd.ca.gov/disability/di_how_to_file_a_claim.htm.
