Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Everybody has medical emergencies arise during their employment period. You are entitled to leave under the FMLA if you are a qualified employee working for a qualified employer. Unfortunately, many employers are hesitant to give this time-off and often times employees have to fight to return to a job position when the leave is over.
Our legal team can help ensure that you are not subject to this type of unfair treatment. We can help you negotiate with your employer to make sure your needs are accommodate within the parameters of the law.
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Just because you believe you are disabled and require an accommodation, does not mean your employer is willing to accommodate you. Make sure you have legal representation to help you work through the process under the ADA to ensure both your position, pay and accommodation needs are met.
An employer has to provide reasonable accommodation, even if it entails some additional expense. We work to see that you are treated fairly and we can handle any discrimination complaints you may have as well.
