(Source: Employment Development Department (EDD)) - The EDD is pleased to announce the launch of a new informational toolkit for employers, which provides tools and resources they can use to help educate their employees about the Paid Family Leave (PFL) program. The toolkit includes helpful checklists that business owners and HR personnel can use to assist their employees should they experience a qualifying event. This may include bonding with a new child, caring for a sick or injured family member, or assisting a military family member deployed to a foreign country. Funding for this program is provided by mandatory payroll deductions, noted as “CASDI” on paystubs. Employers are required to provide information on programs that their employees pay into, including Paid Family Leave. Doing so can be a challenge, but this toolkit makes it easier.

Natural Gas Prices at Historic High

(Source: SDG&E) - Natural gas prices are at a historic high and winter bills could soar due to extraordinary market conditions nationally. SDG&E has programs and services to help mitigate these increases. Visit sdge.com/assistance or sdge.com/asistencia to find out if you qualify for debt forgiveness, one-time payments, monthly bill discounts and more. And, for more information, you can read this article on SDG&E’s NewsCenter page at sdgenews.com.

Wholesale prices for natural gas – a major source of fuel for winter home heating and electric generation – continue to surge and drive household energy bills higher nationwide. SDG&E does not mark up the cost of gas it buys for its customers so they do not make a profit from these rising market prices. SDG&E recognizes that no one wants to see their energy bills go up, especially now. Still, SDG&E also recognizes its responsibility to be transparent with its customers and help prepare them for higher energy bills this winter.
