Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) protects employees who need to take leave from work because of personal or family medical needs or other important family matters. Employees covered by FMLA can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in a year without losing their jobs or benefits. Employers are required to adhere to FMLA rules.

The majority of FMLA violations pertain to maternity leave and pregnancy, mental health treatment and substance abuse treatment. Most of the employment litigation we handle stems from circumstances in which an employee is fired when he or she asks for leave.
