Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
When your child was hospitalized, the last thing you thought you needed to worry about was being fired for taking FMLA leave.
You’ve been a good employee for ten years. You’ve never been sick a day, but then your child was hospitalized with an unexpected illness. You took time off to be at your child’s side. When you were ready to come back to work, you were told your job was gone, but you could take a lower paying position with the company.
The Family and Medical Leave Act was written for your situation. When you left work to care for your seriously ill child, the FMLA protected your job.
That’s just one type of FMLA discrimination–there are many others, which could include harassment from your employer, requesting constant status updates, pressuring you to return to work before you planned, wrongful termination and cutting off your healthcare.
No matter what the cause, it’s not fair and it’s not right. You need FMLA lawyers who fight back. You need us.
