Family or Medical Leave
Have you been fired for taking family or medical leave? Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison will fight for your rights.
Californians are fortunate in that we have robust family and medical leave provisions in our state laws that provide the ability to take time off if:
- You have a serious ailment that prevents you from working
- You need to take care of a sick family member
- You are welcoming a new child to your family
Your employer cannot retaliate against you for requesting or taking any family or medical leave you are entitled to. Instead, they must allow you to return to your former position or a position of equal pay and benefits once your leave has expired or once you have recovered from your illness.
Has Your Employer Treated You Unfairly?
If you believe you have been fired or laid off for reasons related to family or medical leave, you can and should consult an experienced wrongful termination attorney like PLBSH right away. We will help you secure the evidence necessary to prove that illegal retaliation occurred and then take appropriate action against your employer.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to help you:
- Get reinstated in your old position or a position of equal pay and benefits
- Receive compensation for the wages and benefits you missed out on while terminated (or twice this amount if your case is brought under federal law)
- Receive a compensation for all legal fees and costs involved in pursuing legal action against your employer
