Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Discrimination and Retaliation
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires employers to provide employees who have been employed for more than 12 months with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to address their own medical issues or those of family members. All too often, employers fail to provide this required leave, or may retaliate against those who take FMLA leave. For example, an employer many decide to improperly fire an employee after he or she uses the leave during or after a pregnancy or for treatment for a serious medical condition such as cancer. When situations such as these arise, the employee can sue his or her employer for FMLA discrimination or retaliation.
