Family And Medical Leave Act

Were You Denied FMLA Leave? We Can Utilize Our Experience To Help.

Understanding FMLA

Under both the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), qualified workers have the right to take an extended leave from their jobs without fear of losing them when they return.

Employees who qualify can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid intermittent leave for any of the following four reasons:

  • To care for a newborn child
  • To attend to the placement and care of an adoptive or foster child
  • To care for one's own serious health condition, or the serious health condition of a parent or spouse
  • To attend to a medical emergency related to a close family member who is in the military

Despite these protections under federal law, many employers try to find ways to get around the rules, or otherwise deny absences that should be approved.
