Minneapolis FMLA Retaliation Lawyers
Have You Been Treated Unfairly for Taking Medical Leave?
Federal law says that you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) if your employer meets certain criteria. The FMLA is designed to help workers attend to important personal or family issues, without the risk of losing their jobs. These issues can include:
- The employee’s serious health condition
- The birth, adoption or foster placement of children
- Illness experienced by a spouse or immediate family member
- Illness experienced by a blood relative or other member of a worker’s household
- Conditions that require inpatient hospitalization or outpatient care
While the use of FMLA leave is respected by many employers, there are times when management does not honor their responsibilities under the law. If you are in a situation where exercising your FMLA rights has gotten you into trouble, or if you fear retaliation, you should talk to an experienced lawyer right away. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee because of FMLA.
