You Asked For Leave, Not A Layoff

When you use your earned vacation days or sick days, you don't expect your job to be gone upon your return. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens to some employees who take federally protected allowed time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for:

  • Childbirth or pregnancy
  • Adoption
  • A serious medical issue
  • Taking care of a sick relative
  • Caring for a family member returning from active duty

The FMLA allows you to take up to 12 unpaid weeks off of work to deal with specified family issues. Your health insurance (if employer-provided) is supposed to continue during the leave. When you return, you're supposed to get your same job back at the same pay, or at the very least an equivalent job with equivalent pay. If you've been demoted, fired or otherwise penalized for using FMLA leave, call Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C. We know when employers cross the line, and we stand up for your rights when you feel outmatched. Call us at 424-235-1148 to make an appointment for a free initial consultation.

It's Not Up To Them

Your employer may not be happy that you need to take time off, but that doesn't mean it can punish you for it. The FMLA is not a company policy or an optional benefit, but a federally granted right for certain U.S. workers, including:

  • Government employees
  • Public school teachers
  • Employees of companies that have 50 or more employees

Our law firm is serious about protecting California workers' rights to take advantage of this time off without fear of reprisal. If you suspect that you've suffered a work setback because you asked for or took FMLA leave, Los Angeles FMLA attorney Todd M. Friedman can help.

At the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., you will speak directly with an attorney. Todd Friedman will look over your case himself and save you time and stress by giving you timely, valuable feedback on your claim.
