Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Claims

Zealous Representation from a Orange County Employment Law Attorney

In some cases, major life events or emergencies may cause you to need to take time off of work. These obligations and responsibilities should not negatively affect your job status or your professional standing. You are offered many protections under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

At Solmer Law, we can walk you through your options if you have been unreasonably denied leave from work due to a personal health reason or family emergency. We take a personal approach to each case and are passionate advocates for fair treatment in the workplace. Attorney Solmer has been recognized for her hard work in the field of employment law and can help build a case that accurately depicts your situation and fights for your rights.

What Is the FMLA?

The federal government grants employees the right to take time off from work for certain circumstances related to their family members' medical needs. Under this act, you would not lose health insurance coverage or other benefits for handling these family matters.

You may be eligible to take leave from work under the FMLA if you need to care for:

  • A newborn baby
  • A newly adopted or fostered child
  • A family member with a severe medical condition
  • Your own medical condition

If your benefits were discontinued or if you were denied leave for maternity or another family-related medical issue, you need to get in touch with an attorney as soon as possible.
