Family And Medical Leave Lawyer Here To Serve You

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) were designed to provide time off work to employees to care for their own medical needs or those of their close family members.

Most employees are entitled to 12 weeks of family and/or medical leave a year if they have been working for their employer for at least 12 months, have accrued in excess of 1,250 hours during the preceding year and their company employs at least 50 workers.

When an employee takes family or medical leave, they are entitled to return to their previous position or an equivalent. All benefits must be maintained on the employee’s behalf.

The following individuals are entitled to request and be approved to take family or medical leave:

  • Employees who become sick
  • Employees who have ill spouses, children or parents who require care
  • New parents

If you qualify for leave and your employer refuses to provide time off work or retaliates against you, it is essential that you reach out to a family and medical leave attorney at Ceartas Legal.
