The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides that eligible employees are allowed up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off in the event of the birth of a child, an adoption or a serious health condition. If you have been denied this time off, or your employer has taken actions against you because you used this time, it is important to protect your legal rights.

We will work closely with you in order to help you understand your legal options. We will do everything within the law to help you achieve a favorable legal outcome.

Have You Been Fired or Demoted for Taking FMLA Leave?
In any case of FMLA retaliation, it is necessary to demonstrate that the employer took an adverse action against an employee because that employee took FMLA leave.
Examples of such retaliation actions include:
- An employee being terminated for taking FMLA leave
- An employee having his or her job duties dramatically reduced or changed after returning from FMLA leave
- An employee receiving a pay cut for missing work while on FMLA leave
- An employee being terminated for complaining about the employer’s failure to adhere to FMLA guidelines
