Our NYC / Queens FMLA lawyers will fight against and seek to remedy any unlawful employment actions by an employer such as discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, retaliation, an employer's failure to pay minimum wages / overtime, and various other employment law violations by employers. There are many laws that employers must comply with other than discrimination laws, which can include laws such as the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which when certain circumstances are met allows a covered employee to take a job protected unpaid leave of absence for up to twelve (12) workweeks in a twelve (12) month period, or in an even narrower set of circumstances, up to twenty six (26) workweeks in a twelve (12) month period.
If you are an employer faced with a FMLA claim / lawsuit, or you are an employee whose FMLA rights have been interfered with, or an employee who has been retaliated against for taking family and medical leave, please contact our NYC / Queens FMLA attorneys as soon as possible. Statute of limitations apply, so please contact our NYC / Queens FMLA lawyers as soon as possible.
When an employee requests FMLA leave due to his or her own serious health condition or a covered family member's serious health condition, the employer may require certification from a healthcare provider. Under the FMLA, Employers also have the right to request second or thrid medical opinions at the employer's expense, as well as periodic recertification of the serious health condition. If you believe your employer has interfered with your FMLA rights and/or retaliated against you because you engaged in protected activity under the FMLA, please contact our NYC / Queens FMLA attorneys immediately before your rights under the law expire.
When an employee returns to work from FMLA leave, the employee must be restored to his / her original job or to an equivalent job with equivalent pay, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment. If your employment law rights have been violated, we do not recommend taking on your employer on your own. If you believe your FMLA rights have been interfered with and/or violated, please contact our experienced NYC / Queens FMLA attorneys today.
