Medical leave and retaliation: What you need to know

As an expectant mother or father, you may have many legal rights at your place of employment. The same holds true if you need to take a medical leave for yourself or to assist an ill family member.

If you qualify for rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act, it is important to understand what you can and cannot do. You should also have a grasp on the action your employer is permitted to take during this time.

Your employer does not have the right to retaliate against you for taking time off under legal guidelines, such as FMLA. Instead, they need to follow every detail of the law.

Medical leave retaliation comes in many forms, but often involves:

-- Reduced pay

-- Demotion

-- Lack of promotion

-- Denied bonus

--Transition to a less desirable position within the company

-- Termination

Taking medical leave is never easy. This is particularly true if you are dealing with a serious illness. If your employer retaliates against you, it will only make this time more challenging.

Our attorneys understand what medical leave retaliation looks like. For this reason, they can help you win your case and put your trouble in the past.

You should not sit back and let the retaliation go on. Instead, you need to learn more about your rights and then do whatever it takes to protect them. If you need professional help, take the time to read our website and blog. Along with this, don't hesitate to contact us for information pertaining to your particular situation.
