We Protect Your Medical Leave Rights

Some employees are entitled to take leave from their employment because of childbirth, a severe health condition, or the serious health condition of a close relative with the assurance they will be able to return to their position and not experience retaliation for taking leave.

Common reasons employees may be eligible for leave include:

  • Serious illness
  • Serious injury
  • Surgery
  • Childbirth
  • Adoption
  • To care for a spouse, son, daughter or parent who has a severe health condition

Ways in which an employer may violate your right to medical/parental leave include:

  • Denying or preventing you from taking leave
  • Threatening or intimidating you from taking leave
  • Failing to reinstate you to your former position under the same terms that existed prior to your leave
  • Retaliating against you for exercising your rights to leave
  • Terminating your employment for taking leave

If you believe your employer has retaliated against you or unlawfully denied your medical leave, reach out to us.
