Family Medical Leave Act Disputes Attorney
Sometimes we are faced with certain life events that can make working nearly impossible. As a result, both state and federal law mandate that employers give their employees a certain amount of leave to deal with the birth of a child, medical conditions, pregnancy, or injury.
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) permits eligible employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave from work in any 12-month period to care for themselves and/or family members. It applies to private employers with at least 50 employees.
FMLA gives employees the right to be restored to the same or an equivalent position when he or she returns, the right to continued health benefits during leave, and the right not to be retaliated against for taking leave.
If you are being denied FMLA leave or if you are fired for having taken approved FMLA leave, or fired while on leave or immediately upon your return, I can help you file a claim against your employer.
Employees should never be forced to choose between job security and taking time off from work to care for themselves, their new born child, or sick family member.
