Under the Family and Medical Leave Act ("FMLA"), an employer may not discriminate against you for taking a medical leave to care for yourself or a close family member if you, or your family member suffers from a serious illness or injury requiring long-term treatment. An employee is entitled to up to 12 weeks of leave per year if your employer is covered by the FMLA. After your leave has concluded, you employer must place you back in your original position or in an extremely similar position unless a particular exception applies. If you believe that you have been denied an opportunity to take leave under the FMLA, or that your employer has retaliated against you for taking FMLA leave, contact us today.
