Faruqi & Faruqi, a family operated firm, has long championed the rights which the FMLA is designed to protect. Whether you need a leave of absence to care for a chronically ill family member, the birth of a new addition to your family or your own serious medical condition, the FMLA allows qualified employees up to 12 weeks off per year when one of these life-changing events arises.
It is unlawful for employers to deny or interfere with FMLA leave or to retaliate or discriminate against employees taking or requesting such leave. The FMLA also requires that an employee be reinstated to their position, or an equivalent position, upon their return.
We have extensive experience protecting employee rights under the FMLA. If you have been denied FMLA leave or believe you have been discriminated or retaliated against in connection with FMLA leave, please contact our attorneys today for a free and confidential consultation: (877) 247-4292.
