Taking Care Of A Sick Child: Your Employee Rights

Child And Family Sick Leave Lawyers

If you need time off work to care for yourself or your spouse, child or parent, you have rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) to help you balance your work responsibilities with the needs of your family. At Bononi Law Group, LLP, our lawyers have extensive experience and an in-depth understanding of how this law applies to individuals in all employment situations.

To discuss your rights and options regarding employment leave for illness and the obligations of your employer under the FMLA, we can help. Contact our firm or call our Southern California lawyers at 866-295-7512 today to arrange a free consultation with a committed client advocate.

California Sick Leave Retaliation Or Termination

Depending upon the size of the employer, employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks' unpaid family sick leave per year without losing their health benefits. Employees are further guaranteed employment in the same or a comparable position when they return from leave, without retaliation.

Pregnancy raises many questions for female employees and their families. California law requires that employers make accommodations for female employees disabled by pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions for a reasonable amount of time. The FMLA also allows male employees leave for the birth of a child, placement of a child through adoption or foster care, or the serious health condition of a child, spouse or parent.

Our firm is equipped to handle even the most complicated employment law cases. We are highly regarded throughout Southern California for providing employees and employers with high-quality legal advocacy at every stage of the legal process. From the moment we take a case, in alternative dispute resolution, litigation and appeals, we are committed to effectively and efficiently serving the unique needs of each client.
