Family & Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides job security for you to take off 12 weeks during a calendar year and not lose your employment position. You are entitled to time off due to your health condition, a family member’s health condition, to care for a newborn, or during placement of an adopted or foster child. You must be given the opportunity to take your FMLA. If you believe you have been retaliated against or discriminated against as a result of exercising your FMLA rights and your job employment has been adversely, unlawfully or unfairly affected, contact us, Law Offices of Christopher Trainor & Associates. We may be able to help you.

Your job may have been adversely, unlawfully or unfairly affected in the following manner:

  • Rights interfered with or denied
  • Creating a hostile work environment
  • Cutting your hours or benefits
  • Changing your hours
  • Changing your job duties
  • Not getting a promotion you deserve

The law recognizes the growing needs of balancing family and work obligations and promises numerous protections to workers. The leave guaranteed by the act is unpaid, and is available to those working for employers with 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius. In addition, an employee must have worked for the company for at least 12 months and 1,250 hours in those 12 months.
