Leaves of Absence 

FMLA/Medical Leave

Under certain circumstances, employees are entitled to take job-protected leave from work because of their own or a family member’s serious health condition or to bond with a newborn or adopted child. The Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provide remedies for employees who are denied required leave, who are fired for taking it, or who are not allowed to return to work after their leave ends.

How We Can Help

Our experience and commitment to this field allow us to handle the full gambit of labor and employment law matters you may be facing. Dealing with the quagmire of laws and policies pertaining to disabilities, serious medical conditions, reasonable accommodations, and return to work can be stressful and confusing. The Family and Medical Leave Laws, disability discrimination/reasonable accommodation laws, worker’s compensation laws, and your employer’s short term and long term disability policies may have critical bearing on your continued employment and livelihood, and can often be inconsistent, or even at odds with each other. Our experienced lawyers make every effort to not only be on top of these laws, but to also provide the shrewd, practical advice and strategies often needed by clients who are contending with serious illnesses, disabilities, medical leaves, and return-to-work issues.


It is important that these complaints be carefully drafted before they are filed, since the failure to do so can result in losing and/or limiting a client's legal rights, and monetary remedies down the road.


This is a key point in the proceeding. Failure to provide effective responses may result in a finding of “no probable cause to believe discrimination has occurred” and you complaint may be dismissed.

Settlement, Mediation, Conciliation

Our attorneys can assist you in moving through these processes with your eyes open so you do not get taken advantage of, and obtain your best result.

Administrative Hearings

In the event your case cannot be settled, we stand ready to pursue any and all avenues of litigation and appeal to ensure that your voice is heard and that you get your “day in court”.

FMLA/Medical Leave

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) cases are complex. Employers who interfere with an employee’s Family Medical Leave or discriminate or retaliate against an employee for using FMLA often attempt to mask their illegal conduct by falsely claiming legitimate reasons for adverse employment decisions. Speak with an experienced employment lawyer early to determine whether your proposed leave is protected by law and discuss strategies for counteracting an employer who appears to be interfering with your rights.
