Kevin,
According to the state of California’s PFL FAQ page, employees who receive the benefit will also receive a tax form from the state to report their income for federal (not state) taxes.

https://www.edd.ca.gov/disability/FAQ_PFL_Benefits_Payments.htm

Recipients will receive a 1099-G tax form in January of the following year you received benefits.

Employers should not have to take any action for those staff members who received the benefit – tax information will come directly from the provider.
