Monterey County FMLA Violations Lawyer

Taking on All Cases in Hollister & throughout Northern California

You never know when a medical emergency might occur. From the birth of your children to having to take care of a member of your family with a serious illness, employees sometimes need to take time away from work to deal with these important situations.

According to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employers are required to provide their workers with up to 12 weeks of medical leave. However, some companies and corporations neglect FMLA regulations, resulting in unnecessary hardship for their workers. If you have been fired or have lost wages because of a medical emergency, you might be entitled to financial compensation.

Contact Polaris Law Group at (888) 796-4010 to discuss your situation with our employment law attorney today. 

How Does FMLA Affect Workers?

  • Gives employees the right to take a paid leave of absence to deal with serious medical and family matters. This includes the birth of children and caring for members of your family with serious medical conditions.
  • Allows employers and employees to balance the demands of the workplace and their families.

What Types of Employees Are Covered Under FMLA?

The Family Medical Leave Act doesn’t cover all employees. In California, employers must have 50 workers who live within a 75-mile radius of their business to be FMLA eligible. An employee needs to have worked for at least 12 months with at least 1,250 hours of service for their employer to be covered under the FMLA.

Common types of FMLA violations include:

  • Wrongful termination because of an illness
  • Wrongful demotion after an employee has given birth or missed a substantial amount of work
  • Firing an employee for taking care of a relative, spouse, or child
  • Loss of wages and employee benefits related to medical or family emergencies
