Family and Medical Leave Act
Did your employer terminate you because you took time off to deal with a medical condition or care for a family member?
Has your employer been trying to convince you to not take medical leave even though your doctor says you need to take the time?
Do you feel conflicted between trying to keep your job and take care of a sick family member?
The Family and Medical Leave Act Allows You Medical Leave Time to Take Care of Yourself and Your Family
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, Madia Law can help. If you’ve worked for your employer for over a year, you have the right under the Family and Medical Leave Act to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to deal with medical issues for you and your family. This includes taking time for the birth and care of a child, taking time to care for your spouse or child suffering from a serious medical condition, and taking time to get the medical treatment you need for your own medical condition. Employers may not interfere with your right to take medical leave or retaliate against you for exercising that right. I represent employees who have had their federal rights violated by some of the largest and most powerful employers in the country.
You are Entitled to Your Lost Wages and Damages
If your employer violated your FMLA rights, you may be entitled to lost wages and benefits, actual monetary losses, liquidated damages up to double your actual damages, and your attorney fees and costs.
