You Have The Right To Be There For Your Family
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is one way in which the law protects your right to fulfill your obligations to your loved ones. Not everyone in the workplace may understand the rules included in FMLA, and this often means employees spend valuable family time struggling for legitimate time away from their jobs. The Litigation Boutique LLC in Denver fights for workers to help them receive the time off they deserve.
If you have lost your job, your employment status or other benefits because you took time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act, you have the right to fight back. Our lawyers have the experience to assist you.
When Can I Take Time Off Under FMLA?
There are certain situations for which you can take unpaid leave without the risk of losing your job. Some examples of these situations include the following:
- You or an immediate family member has a serious or prolonged illness requiring medical appointments, hospital stays or assistance during periods of incapacitation.
- You need time off for reasons related to the deployment, illness or injury of a military service member in your family.
- You are having, adopting, fostering or assuming legal guardianship of a child.
Your own situation may be unique, and you may be unsure if it qualifies for FMLA. Our attorneys can answer your questions and support you as you request the benefits to which you are entitled.
When your leave is over, you should be able to return to your regular job at the same status and pay as your previous job, or to a position with similar duties and rank. Your benefits, opportunities and general schedule should be similar to your previous position. If this doesn’t happen, we can provide you with the options available for filing a complaint.
