California employees likely have many expectations when it comes to their workplaces. The simplest may be that their workplaces are safe.

California woman was not protected by FMLA

The Family Medical Leave Act protects certain workers from losing their job when they need to take time off from work. This time includes time off to be with a new baby, or to care for a sick family member. When an employee qualifies for FMLA leave, the employer must hold the employee's job for them for up to 12 weeks. During this time, the employee does not need to get paid but FMLA specifics can be complicated. Determining how to properly take FMLA leave, or whether a California employee qualifies for leave can often create confusion.
