FMLA Experience & Commitment That Yields Results

Northridge Family & Medical Leave Act Lawyers

Protecting Your Federal Employment Rights in the San Fernando Valley

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal statute that grants employees the right to take a temporary leave of absence for medical reasons or for military deployment. The state of California has a similar law called the California Family Rights Act, which provides comparable protections. The FMLA also prohibits employers from retaliating against workers who legally exercise these rights.

If you believe your employment rights under the FMLA have been violated, it is highly recommended that you discuss your situation with an experienced employment law attorney at K2 Employment Law Group. Our firm represents workers in and around the San Fernando Valley in all issues pertaining to their legal rights under state and federal employment laws. We have worked on both sides of these issues, representing employers as well as employees, which has given us a deep understanding of how to defend against large companies. Our firm now handles cases for employees only.

Your Rights under the FMLA

The FMLA is applicable to companies that employ more than 50 employees within a 75-mile radius. Under this law, your employer is required to permit you a minimum of 12 weeks of unpaid leave that includes your existing benefits during a 12-month period of time. This leave is allowable under certain circumstances.

Those circumstances include:

  • Becoming seriously ill
  • Needing to care for an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent) who has become seriously ill or injured
  • Developing complications related to a pregnancy
  • Preparing for and giving birth
  • Adopting a child
  • Fostering a child

Under the FMLA, your employer must provide leave of absence for the above-listed reasons and allow you to return to your same position or a similar one once your leave ends. To qualify for FMLA leave, you must have worked at your job for a least a year and have accumulated a minimum of 1,250 work hours during that time. In some cases, you may have to provide medical certification verifying the serious health condition that requires a leave of absence.

If you believe your rights have been denied in regards to the FMLA or in any other employment law matter, K2 Employment Law Group provides skilled and caring legal counsel and representation in any administrative or legal proceedings. Our Northridge FMLA lawyers are ready to assist you with your case.
