Family & Medical Leave Act Lawyers
Retain Tenacious Advocates in Los Angeles
If you are expecting a child in the near future, it is important to understand
the Family & Medical Leave Act and how it works. Many employers are
required under this act to allow workers to have leave (unpaid) in order
to care for a newborn child, care for a sick child, or for the arrival
of an adopted child. Unfortunately, not all employers follow these guidelines
and refuse to grant employees leave. If they reluctantly grant the leave,
they may try to retaliate against the employee in the form of demotion.
If this has happened to you, it may be possible to seek compensation for
lost wages or other pain and suffering.
Forms of retaliation that can be violations of the law include the following:
- Refusal to promote based on the employee's decision to take family leave
- Demotion upon employee's return to work
- Wrongful termination
- Hostile work environment
