FMLA Retaliation

Orange County FMLA Attorneys

You Have a Right to Take Medical Leave

If you have to take time off work for medical reasons, such as recovering from an injury or giving birth to a child, your employer is required by the Family & Medical Leave Act to maintain your current employment status for up to 12 weeks. Most employers are aware of this and will provide the unpaid time off without complaint. Some, however, unlawfully deny their employees the leave they deserve or will find ways to retaliate against them when they return.

At Aegis Law Firm, our experienced FMLA lawyers in Orange County can fight for your rights as an employee. We know how important it is that you have job security while taking medical leave. You should not have to worry that your career is at risk for taking needed time off.

Do You Qualify for Medical Leave?

Employers with at least 50 employees must adhere to the FMLA. In order to take medical leave that is protected under the FMLA, you must meet certain qualifications:

  • You must have worked at the company for at least one year
  • You must have worked at least 1,250 hours the past year
  • You or a family member has a serious health condition that requires attention
    • You can also take time off to handle situations involving a family member in military service

You can take up to 12 weeks of leave in a 12 month period for medical reasons, or 26 weeks of leave in a 12 month period for military purposes. While on leave, you should still have access to your health insurance coverage provided through your employer.

Don’t Put Off Medical Concerns for Your Job

When you have a medical concern, addressing it should be your first priority. The FMLA was created for that very reason. Some employers will take advantage of employees who do not know or understand the law. Don’t let this happen to you. Reach out to the skilled Orange County FMLA lawyers at Aegis Law Firm in Irvine today. We’re ready to help.
