Knowing Your Rights Under The Family And Medical Leave Act
Has your employer denied your request to take leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)? Were you terminated or retaliated against at work because you requested FMLA leave? You may be able to recover financial compensation.
To determine if you are eligible, please contact me, employment law lawyer Stephen Roger Bosin in Bergen County. I can review your case and tell you whether or not your employer may have violated your rights in denying your leave, terminating your employment or retaliating against you. If so, I will file a lawsuit and seek financial compensation on your behalf. I serve clients throughout New Jersey.
What Is FMLA?
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that gives employees the right to take up to 12 weeks of leave in certain circumstances. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, FMLA leave can be used:
- For the care of an employee’s newborn or adopted child
- To care for a spouse, child or parent with a serious health condition
- As medical leave when an employee is unable to work because of a serious health condition
Individuals and organizations that employ 50 or more people are obligated to grant FMLA leave to eligible employees. As your attorney, I can determine whether you were eligible to take leave under state or federal law and whether you gave your employer proper notice.
If your employer violated the law by subjecting you to wrongful termination or retaliation, my firm can help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
