If you were fired due to taking Family Medical Leave, or your employer did not reinstate you after you took Family Medical Leave call 1-877-525-0700 to speak to our Family Medical Leave Act lawyers.
Legal cases involving job terminations due to Family Medical Leave often occur when:
The California version of the Federal Family Medical Leave Act is called the California Family Leave Rights Act abbreviated as, “CFRA.” Both the Federal Family Medical Leave Act, abbreviated, “FMLA” and the California Act apply to:
All of the above prerequisites for CFRA/FMLA can be waived by the employer. There are some employers whom have less than fifty employees and provide CFRA/FMLA coverage to their employees. There are also some employers whom allow employees to take more than twelve weeks for CFRA/FMLA leave and/or they include baby bonding in their CFRA/FMLA coverage. Certainly, an employee should not count on any of these rare exceptions being made to what the California Family Rights Leave Act or Family Medical Leave Act covers.
Whatever the employer’s excuse was for your termination of employment, we would like to speak to you if you feel your CFRA/FMLA rights were violated. Our experience in CFRA/FMLA cases include multiple won binding arbitrations in which Family Medical Leave/California Family Rights Leave Act Rights were involved as well as jury trials. We have also settled many cases involving the failure to grant and/or loss of employment due to the exercise of Family Medical Leave/California Family Legal Rights Leaves.
