Family & Medical Leave Lawyers in San Diego
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) were designed to provide time off of work to qualifying employees.
Qualifying employees are entitled to 12 weeks of family leave and / or medical leave a year if they have been working for their employer for at least twelve months, have accrued in excess of 1,250 hours in the preceding year, and their company employs at least 50 workers.
When an employee takes family or medical leave, they are entitled to return to their previous or an equivalent position at the rate of pay immediately prior to taking leave. All benefits must be maintained on the employee’s behalf. Those who qualify for family leave or medical leave cannot be denied that right without the employer facing substantial penalties.
The following individuals are entitled to request and be approved to take family leave or medical leave:
Employees who become sick
Employees who have an ill spouse, child, or parent who requires care
If you qualify for leave and your employer refuses to provide time off work or retaliates against you, it is essential that you contact a family leave attorney or medical leave lawyer at Ceartas Legal LLP. Failure to do so in a timely manner will result in the permanent loss of your ability to obtain monetary compensation for the violation of your rights.
