Family and Medical Leave Act Violations

We represent employees whose rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) have been violated.

The FMLA permits eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.

The statute entitles eligible employees to:

  • Twelve workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for various events, such as the birth of a child, to care for the employee’s spouse, child or parent who has a serious health condition, the employee’s own serious health condition, or any qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that the employee’s spouse, son, daughter, or parent is a covered military member on “covered active duty;” or
  • Twenty-six workweeks of leave during a single 12-month period to care for a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness if the eligible employee is the servicemember’s spouse, son, daughter, parent, or next of kin (military caregiver leave).

If you believe your rights under the FMLA have been violated, contact us to discuss your situation.
