San Francisco Family And Medical Leave Act Attorneys

Family is one of the most important foundations of our society. Our laws recognize that people should be able to both earn a living while taking care of medical needs that arise in their families. Likewise, families should not have to give up their careers for childbirth or adoption.

At The Cartwright Law Firm, we are passionate about protecting employees’ rights to family and medical leave. We have stood strong for the rights of employees for more than 60 years. Our employment law attorney is a tough advocate dedicated to fighting injustice.

Know Your FMLA Rights

Both the California Family Rights Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) require certain employers to provide employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for medical reasons. Reasons for medical leave include:

  • Childbirth
  • Adoption
  • Serious health conditions affecting you, your spouse, your child or close family relatives

To qualify for leave, you must have worked for your employer for more than a year. Upon your return, your employer cannot discriminate or retaliate against you for exercising your right to leave. Retaliation can take many forms, including:

  • Firing or terminating you
  • Suspending you
  • Eliminating your position without offering you a similar one
  • Reducing your pay or benefits
  • Demoting you
  • Harassing you

Defending Your Rights And Fighting For Justice

If your employer has violated your FMLA rights, it is important to seek experienced legal counsel as soon as you can. The law imposes short deadlines for taking action to protect your rights.

At The Cartwright Law Firm, we can help you navigate the complexities of protecting your rights, from filing claims with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to pursuing your claims in court. We are zealous in defending our clients’ rights and helping them obtain justice.
