Family and Medical Leave Act

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (or "FMLA") certain employees are entitled to unpaid protected time off work to handle family and medical issues. This means that your employer cannot legally terminate you because you take FMLA qualifying leave. When you return to work, your employer is further prohibited from retaliating against you in any manner and must return you to the same-or equivalent-job that you held prior to taking leave. Most eligible employees are entitled to a maximum of 12 weeks of leave per year. Others employees may receive as much as 26 weeks of leave during any one year period.

The Blackburn Law Firm offers traditional legal representation or more discrete guidance and coaching via our Employee Advocate Program.Our firm is experienced in helping employees understand their rights under the FMLA. Call us today to see if you qualify for leave or if you believe that your rights have been violated.
