        Taking Medical or Family Leave

        There’s likely a time in almost everybody’s life where they need to take time off of work for their family or for medical reasons. This might include starting a family or caring for a parent or going through a serious medical condition. You are protected by California state law if you need to take a period of time away from work for a family or medical leave. This applies to either a short-term leave or long-term leave when regarding medical or family leave.

        If you need to take family or medical leave, you are typically protected under the law if your employee has a specific number of workers in the company who have been with the company for over a year. Both the FMLA and the CFRA (California Family Rights Act) will protect you from your employer if they decide to retaliate against and fire you if you need to take short or long-term leave. The following reasons that are protected under the law are:

        • Going on maternity leave for either an adopted baby or giving birth to a baby
        • Going on leave before you give birth for medical reasons
        • Having a severe injury or illness
        • Caring for your immediate member of your family who is suffering a serious injury or illness

        Your employer should know very well that they are supposed to follow these laws which protect you and allow you to take these types of medical or family leaves. If they ignore the laws, they are violating your rights. You are able to do something about this. You don’t have to feel frustrated and helpless. You are legally entitled to take these short or long-term leaves for family or medical reasons. Please get in contact with our Orange County FMLA lawyer as soon as you possibly can and we will get started on building you a case.

        What Are CFRA and FMLA?

        CFRA stands for the California Family Rights Act. FMLA stands for the Family Medical Leave Act. FMLA is a federal leave act and CFRA is a state act. According to the state act, you are eligible to take 12 weeks of leave within a year.

        Your employer should understand these laws and know that they are obligated to follow the laws. They need to know the following:

        • Knowing which of their employees is eligible to take family or medical leave
        • Determining how long their employees need to take their leave and giving them confirmation when they ask for it
        • Making sure that they adjust their schedules to accommodate their employee taking leave
        • Keeping a record of the leave being taken by employees

        However, the employer should not be denying you leave. If you are an employee who is protected by CFRA and or FMLA then your employer is obligated to let you take your leave. They cannot tell you that you are not allowed to take your leave and they cannot force you to come back before your leave is up. If you’re rights have been violated we want to hear from you and we want to fight for you.

        Call us right away and we will get started working on your case when you decide that our Orange County FMLA lawyer is right for you.

        Here are some scenarios in which CFRA and FMLA have been violated:

        • An employer firing their employee because they need to take a leave because of a serious illness or injury
        • Changing an employee’s position to a different role in the company when they return from their leave
        • Getting rid of an employee when they tell you that they need to take leave to start their family, take care of a family member, or deal with a serious injury or illness
        • Terminating an employee because they spoke up about being denied leave that is protected under state and federal law

        While you are on your leave, you are entitled to keep your benefits, including your healthcare as your employer is required to provide you the same benefits as if you were still actively working. If you’ve experienced retaliation because you need to take family medical leave, experience discrimination based on taking the sleeve, or been refused to take a leave, your rights have been violated. Our Orange County FMLA lawyer wants to help you get the justice that you deserve. Please get in contact with us as soon as you possibly can and we will help you.

        How does CFRA Help You?

        If you are an employee in California seeking damages through the CRFA because your employer violated your rights, you may be entitled to the following:

        • The fees for your attorney associated with your employment lawsuit
        • Any earnings or wages that you lost out on, including your salary, bonuses, benefits or other compensation because you were denied your rights by your employer
        • The interest that you would collect from this compensation that you lost out on
        • Any emotional damages that you suffered through
        • Costs regarding your lawsuit
        • Possible punitive damages

        The amount that you are entitled to might surprise you, and the only way to know for sure exactly what you are entitled to is to get in contact with our Orange County FMLA lawyer and figure out what your rights are, how they’ve been violated, and what you can expect from a fair and full result.
