FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE ACT
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), you have a right to not lose your job if you take leave because of a medical need for you or a family member. However, there are certain requirements in order to be qualified for this protection.
When you are covered by the FMLA, you are entitled to 12 weeks of unpaid leave, and are entitled to be returned to the same position that you had prior to taking leave. In addition, you have a right for your employer not to require you to work while on leave, or retaliate against you or terminate your employment for taking leave.
If you want to know if you are covered by this law or have taken leave and suffered interference or retaliation by your employer, call M. CARTER LAW.
