Representing Employees With Family And Medical Leave Act Claims


The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that gives most employees the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to care for themselves or family members. Employees typically request FMLA leave to care for a spouse, child or family member with a serious health condition, or after the birth of a child. After your FMLA leave, your employer must return you to the same job you held prior to taking leave or to an equivalent position with the same benefits and pay.

Unfortunately, it is not unheard of for employers to terminate employees during or after an FMLA leave. If you have been fired or demoted during or near an FMLA leave, it is important to discuss your situation with an experienced employment law lawyer.
