Phoenix Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA) And ADA Lawyer
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are laws designed to protect employees who need reasonable disability and medical leave accommodations. In general, ADA covers employers with 15 or more employees, and FMLA covers employers with 50 or more employees.
If you believe that your employer violated your disability accommodation or medical leave rights, you may have a claim for compensation and legal remedies against your employer. Phoenix FMLA attorneys at the Zoldan Law Group PLLC represent employees whose rights have been violated in the workplace.

With some exceptions, FMLA provides that employers are required to give employees leave for up to 12 weeks in a calendar year for their healthcare needs, or to care for a spouse, child, or parent. FMLA disputes frequently arise when employers wrongly deny time off for employees, or they punish employees for taking time off.
Common FMLA violations involve employers penalizing employees for taking pregnancy and maternity leave, seeking treatment for drug or alcohol abuse, or denying time off to care for ill family members. Your employer is prohibited from wrongfully terminating, demoting, or otherwise harming your employment because you exercised your right to take FMLA leave.
ADA is designed to protect employees from being discriminated against for having temporary or permanent disabilities. Under ADA, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations for employee disabilities. Examples of reasonable accommodations may include handicap accessible facilities and workspace, a modified work schedule, equipment modification, and time off for disability-related reasons.
The definition of ‘reasonable’ is often at the heart of ADA disputes. In general, employers are required to accommodate employee disabilities unless doing so would cause an undue hardship on the employer. In such cases, employers typically argue that they will incur significant difficulty or expense in making necessary accommodations.
