Family Medical Leave Act
Employees are protected from harassment at work or termination when requesting Family Medical Leave, even if they are not entitled to the leave. Additionally, the employees position must be held open for the employees return to work or the employee must be offered a similar position with the same pay.
The Family Medical Leave Act grants unpaid leave to certain employees and protects employees from retaliation and interference when requesting time off of work due to a serious medical condition or to care for a family member with a serious medical condition.
It is wise to consult with an attorney before requesting time off via the Family Medical Leave Act.
