Understanding The Family And Medical Leave Act
Southern California Family And Medical Leave Act Attorneys
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) entitles employees who have been with their current employer at least one year up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave per year for family and medical care. Additionally, it requires that other benefits and conditions be maintained throughout the leave. This includes leave for the birth of a child, the adoption of a child or the serious health condition of a child, spouse, parent or the employee.

Medical Leave Legal Protections
Designed to help employees balance their work and family responsibilities, the FMLA allows for reasonable unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons, while still seeking to accommodate the legitimate interests of employers. An employee must follow certain procedures to receive FMLA entitlements, including leave and continued health benefits, as well as job preservation and restoration.
