People are often fired while on leave, after the leave is over or soon after asking about medical leave. Our California FMLA attorneys focus on FMLA cases and know how to use this law to recover a settlement for you. We are frequently able to resolve these cases quickly for people.
The FMLA stands for Family Medical Leave Act. This law provides employees with the right to take up to 90 days off to care for themselves or close family members with medical issues.
This law gives employees the right to take medical leave for themselves or family members. It also protects employees from retaliation for exercising their right to take medical leave. Employers sometimes fire or otherwise punish employees for taking medical leave and this law protects employees who get punished.
