Woman allegedly subjected to retaliation for using FMLA leave

Many eligible, full-time employees in the United States have access to benefits such as health and dental insurance, as well as paid time off. Employees in California and across the country also have federal and state laws to protect them and allow coverage in the event of an extended leave for medical reasons. The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) allows eligible workers up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave a year. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for workers to face retaliation from employers for using FMLA leave.

Man allegedly faced retaliation for exercising FMLA rights

California is one of the greatest states in which to live and work. Being a full-time employee in California and across the country is not only about the pay, it is also about benefits such as health insurance and paid medical leave. The Family and Medical Leave Act ensures that workers are still paid when injuries or illnesses force them to miss work for extended periods of time. Unfortunately, some employers these days can and will retaliate against employees who use their rightful medical leave. Recently, a lawsuit was filed when a worker allegedly faced retaliation for using his FMLA rights.

Taking medical leave results in alleged retaliation and job loss

Workers in California and all across the United States have laws at the federal and state level that protect them from unfair acts in the workplace. One of these laws, the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), gives qualified employees the right to take an extended period of time off of work for health related reasons or to care for an immediate family member that has a serious health condition. Unfortunately, not all employers are compliant with these laws and, as a form of retaliation, will punish or discipline employees for using medical leave. This is allegedly what happened to an employee in another state and he has taken legal action.
