The Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) protects employees in the event of serious medical conditions, as well as for the arrival of a child. The basic FMLA benefit is that eligible employees working for covered employers can take up to 12 unpaid weeks off from work to tend to a personal illness, to care for a sick family member, or for the birth or adoption of a child.
Among the circumstances that may give rise to a claim:
- you have requested time off under FMLA and you have been denied
- you have been fired or disciplined because you have requested or used FMLA leave
- your employer has forced you to change shifts or otherwise limited your responsibilities after you requested FMLA leave
