Caring for Yourself or Your Family
Employees covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) may take unpaid job-protected time away from work due to their own serious health condition, a family member’s serious health condition, or the arrival of a newborn or adopted child. These employees may qualify for up to 12 weeks of leave. Sometimes, FMLA leave can be taken on an intermittent basis - even for just minutes or hours at a time to attend activities such as medical or therapeutic appointments.
Examples of Unlawful Employer Conduct:
- Neglecting to offer FMLA benefits
- Interfering, restraining or preventing employees from exercising FMLA rights
- Denying FMLA benefits to a qualified employee
- Retaliating against an employee for requesting or taking FMLA leave
- Retaliating against an employee for opposing an unlawful employer FMLA practice
- Retaliating against an employee for participating in a proceeding related to the FMLA
