PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF WORKERS AGAINST ILLEGAL BUSINESS PRACTICES
Medical emergencies are a part of life. Whether it is the birth of a child, the care of a family member, or a serious medical condition, employees may need to take time off from work to address these important issues. Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employers must provide eligible workers with up to 12 weeks of medical leave. Unfortunately, far too many companies and corporations fail to comply with FMLA guidelines and the results can be disastrous. If you have lost wages or have been wrongfully terminated, it is time to seek representation from an experienced and knowledgeable Los Angeles employment attorney with an extensive track record of getting results. My name is Jeffrey Rager and I am a Los Angeles Family Medical Leave Act Violation attorney. Over the years, The Rager Law Firm has successfully represented countless employees who have been the victim of various FMLA violations.
WHAT IS THE FAMILY MEDICAL LEAVE ACT AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT EMPLOYEES?
The Family Medical Leave Act is one of the most important laws that affect both employers and their employees. It serves several important functions including:
Allow employees to take a reasonable paid leave of absence to address serious medical and family matters, including the birth of a child, the care of an ill parent, spouse, and child, or a parent who has a serious medical condition.
Allow employers and their employees to balance the demands of the workplace in regard to their families.
All of the above should also satisfy the legitimate interests of employers.
WHO IS COVERED BY THE FMLA?
Not all employers and employees are covered by the Family Medical Leave Act. California employers must employ more than 50 workers who live within a 75-mile radius. Eligible workers must accumulate at least 12 months of employment along with at least 1,250 hours of service with their current employer.
COMMON FMLA VIOLATIONS AND HOW A LOS ANGELES EMPLOYMENT ATTORNEY CAN HELP
When a medical or family emergency arises, employees may need to take extensive time away from the workplace. If they are eligible under FMLA regulations, they should not have to worry about losing any wages or termination. However, that is not always the case. As a Los Angeles Family Medical Leave Act violation attorney, I have helped many responsible employees recover their lost wages and damages for the following FMLA violations:
The Wrongful demotion of an employee after they have given birth or missed significant time
Termination of an employee after they have left to take care of a family member, spouse, or child
The loss of wages and employee benefits
