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.
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:
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.
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:
Countless workers in Los Angeles have wrongfully lost their job or wages due to FMLA violations. It is vital to seek immediate legal representation from an employment attorney with a track record of protecting the rights of each client and looking after their best interests. Over the years, attorney Jeffrey Rager has helped clients recover $30 million in verdicts and settlements. He has been rated as a Top 100 Attorney every year by Super Lawyers since 2012.
