Violations Of The Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act, commonly known as FMLA, is a federal law that guarantees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to an employee in order to care for themselves or a family member without fear of losing their job. FMLA applies to paternity and maternity leave and provides medical leave under certain circumstances.

At our firm, Nilges Draher LLC, we can help you understand FMLA regulations that apply to you, and we will fight for your rights if you are denied leave under these laws.

Do I Qualify For FMLA Leave?

The federal FMLA legislation covers all private employers that employ more than 50 people, as well as public agencies and employees of elementary/secondary schools of any size. To qualify to take FMLA leave, you must also:

  • Have worked for your current employer for at least 12 months
  • Have worked at least 1,250 hours for your current employer in the past 12 months
  • Work for an employer who has at least 50 employees within 75 miles of your job site

If you do not meet all of the above conditions, you may not qualify for FMLA leave.

What Can I Do If I Am Denied FMLA Leave?

If you have been denied leave under the FMLA guidelines, a lawyer from our firm can review your situation and discuss possible next steps.
