Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Issues
The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is designed to allow you to take time off from work for medical reasons or to care for a family member. If your employer has denied your FMLA leave or if you think you have been treated unfairly by your employer because you took FMLA leave, our attorneys can help.
We Help People Across Pennsylvania
At the law firm of Markowitz & Richman, we pride ourselves on offering exceptionally qualified legal counsel to employees who have issues with their employer over FMLA leave.
Covered employers (those with more than 50 employees) must grant an eligible employee up to 12 workweeks of unpaid leave during any 12-month period for any of the following reasons:
- To care for a newborn child of the employee;
- To care for a child who has been placed with the employee for adoption or foster care;
- To care for a spouse, child or parent with a serious health condition;
- To care for the employee’s own serious health condition.
Your employer cannot refuse your request for FMLA leave if you are eligible, and cannot terminate you or take other adverse actions against you because you took FMLA leave.
