There may come a moment in a Californian's life where they need to take extended time off of work, be it for family or health reasons. Fortunately, there is an act that allows you to get that time off without fearing job loss. It's called the Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA. The Law Offices of Mauro Fiore JR., are here to step in and help if you feel that your protection under this act has been violated.

The FMLA is designed to help you out in two primary situations. One is if you or a loved one suffers from a long-lasting illness and cannot work because of it. The other situation covers the period of time after a child is born or adopted, and is intended to give new parents the chance to create a bond with your child.

Under the FMLA, you're allowed up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave every single year. "Unpaid leave" is exactly what it sounds like: you won't be paid during the time you're away from work. However, it's also illegal for your bosses to terminate your position for taking time off under this act.

Even if you aren't fired, it's possible for your FMLA rights may be violated. Examples include being passed over for promotions you should have been eligible for, having your duties changed around in your absence, or not being granted protection for the full period of absence.

Fortunately for you, FMLA claims are taken seriously and rectified swiftly in many cases. To read more about possible FMLA violations and what you can do about them, take a look at our linked web page.
