Your Rights Under FMLA & CFRA
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and California Family Rights Act (CFRA) allows employees to take time up to 12 weeks off from work in a 12-month period for family or health-related reasons. These laws protect employees who have been working for an employer with 50 or more employees and have been working for at least a year. In order to be protected, you must have requested your leave in a timely manner and submitted all of the requested documentation, such as medical documents. During this time, you must not be fired or your job must not be changed unless you have been offered a comparable opportunity.
Federal and California leave of absence laws allow employees to take time off for:
- Disability leave
- Leave for jury duty
- Maternity/paternity leave
- New parent leave
- Military leave
- Medical leave of absence
- Pregnancy leave
Taking Action Against FMLA & CFRA Violations
The first step, if you suspect that your employer has violated the law, is to consult with a Los Angeles employment law attorney who is familiar with the FMLA and related laws that affect your case. We can sit down with you to ensure you understand your rights and your options so that you can make an informed decision. Our goal, at Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP, is to pursue a remedy that meets your needs, including having you reinstated or demanding legal damages.
