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.
