Family and Medical Leaves

In California, an eligible employee can be protected by both federal and state law when they take medical, or family care leave.  Always contact an attorney experienced in both federal and state laws protecting employees who take family care and medical leave to understand your rights. The Family and Medical Leave Act, or FMLA, is an act under federal law, which entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave. Eligible employees are entitled to:

Twelve workweeks of leave in a 12-month period for:

Also, employees have similar rights to take family care and medical leave under the California Family Rights Act, or CFRA. In some circumstances, your rights under CFRA may be even broader than under the FMLA.  Always contact an experienced attorney to determine your rights under either FMLA or CFRA. If your employer is giving you a hard time about taking family care or medical leave, or if you have been denied the right to take family care or medical leave, contact us to see if we can help.  We have had great success representing employees who have been denied their rights under both FMLA and CFRA, and have gained a reputation for having some of the most skilled FMLA lawyers in the Los Angeles area.
