FMLA Rights Lawyers in Denver, Colorado
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) may not be one of the most publicized federal labor laws, but it provides very important benefits. This federal statute grants many employees the right to take a leave of up to 12 weeks for a major family event — unpaid, but with his or her employment status protected.
If you take your leave under FMLA for valid reasons, it is a form of employment discrimination for your employer to fire or otherwise take adverse action against you. If you believe you are entitled to FMLA leave but are let go for taking it or given notice that you will be let go if you take it, contact an employment law attorney at our firm.
Do You Qualify for FMLA Leave?
Some of the conditions for having rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act are:
- The law covers employees of public agencies, schools and companies with 50 or more employees.
- The employee must have worked a minimum of 12 months for the company and 1,250 hours in the past 12 months.
- Your leave must be taken for the birth and care of a child, an adoption or foster care placement, your own serious health condition, or the serious health condition of a spouse, child or parent.
