The Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr., with offices in Los Angeles, Monrovia, West Covina and Palm Desert, is committed to you. You have the right to FMLA if you work for an employer with 50 or more employees. If you are unsure about your rights or believe your rights have been violated, do not hesitate to call us to discuss your case.
Strong Advocates To Help You Receive Fair Treatment
Our lawyers will advocate for your rights under the California Family Rights Act and the federal Family and Medical Leave Act. You are entitled to unpaid leave when you are sick, to help care for a sick relative, after the birth of a child or after the adoption of a child. Your employer is required to give you up to 12 weeks unpaid leave every year without the risk of losing your job.
Your Rights Under FMLA
You can file an FMLA claim and wrongful termination claim if you have been fired during or after this protected leave. Violations of your rights may not be as clear in other FMLA claims.
Even if you have not been fired, your rights may still be violated by your employer. Examples of violations include:
- Not granting you protected leave for the full amount of time or at all
- Changing your job duties when you return to work
- Failing to consider you for promotions due to your FMLA leave
These are just some examples of the ways employers may violate your rights during or after you take leave. We will help you learn about your rights at work and what legal options are available when you have been the victim of a labor law violation.
We know this process is difficult, especially with everything else you may be dealing with outside of work. We are here to guide you through this process so you know what to expect and what can be done to make sure you are treated fairly at work.
