Aggressive Protection of Your Rights Under The Law

Take full advantage of your family leave rights

When California workers go to their workplaces, they might not think about all of the rights that accompany them. If workers never encounter an employment issue or health problem, they may never have to understand these rights. However, in most cases, employees are not that lucky.

Many California residents need to take advantage of certain employment laws during their years in the workforce. In particular, many will have rely on the Family Medical Leave Act. This act gives employees the right to take unpaid family leave for certain medical and family issues.

For example, the FMLA allows people to take up to 12 unpaid weeks of leave in order to care for certain sick family members. It also allows people time off following the birth or adoption of a child. Taking advantage of this law and other state laws that give family leave is essential is times of crisis. It allows people to focus on their own family instead of worrying about their job security.

Enforcing these laws, however, can be difficult if employers refuse to cooperate. There are times when employers unfairly and illegally deny workers the right to take family leave. In these situations, it is imperative that California employees turn to employment attorneys. Attorneys -- like those at our law firm -- can help people understand their legal rights. We can ensure that employers are notified of their transgressions. By doing this, employees may be able to negotiate a fair settlement with the employer.

If this is not possible, further legal action might be necessary. An attorney can help to review employment files, file legal documents and take the case to the court. Our attorneys have worked hard to help California employees who have been denied family leave for years. Our firm understands just how important coming to a resolution on these cases can be.

For more information on how we can help those such issues, please see our family leave website.
