Employment Law

The Family Medical Leave Act was enacted to protect the employees and give them the time they need to take care of themselves or their families.

In order to help employees balance their work life and family responsibilities, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was enacted. This provides employees the ability to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year to take care of their own or a family member’s serious medical condition.

When an employee requests or takes time off due to FMLA covered condition, they may have a strong legal claim against their employer if the employer does one of the following:

  • refused to let you take time off
  • fired or disciplined you for requesting leave
  • forced you to come back to work before your leave was through, or
  • refused to return you to your former position when you finished taking time off

If employers try to deny or interfere with their employee’s FMLA rights, or retaliate when employees try to exercise these rights, they may be found liable to the employee for lost wages and benefits, other damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs.If your claim was denied or you are facing FMLA issues with your employer, there is help available from a trusted, proven, experienced labor and employment law attorney.
