Family and Medical Leave Act Lawyers in Raleigh-Durham, NC

If you work for a company with 50 or more employees, and you or a family member has a serious illness or medical condition, the law says that your employer has to give you time off and can’t fire you for taking that time off. The Family and Medical Leave Act is a United States federal law that requires large employers to provide their workers with unpaid leave for certain medical and family reasons. If you were fired or demoted after you took FMLA leave or if you have been denied unpaid leave, you may have a claim under FMLA. Our experienced FMLA attorneys can figure out whether you may be able to bring an FMLA claim against your employer. If you do have a claim, our FMLA lawyers can negotiate with your employer on your behalf, help you file a complaint with the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor, and file a lawsuit against your employer if necessary. A nurse who was demoted after she took time off to care for her dying mother; A plant manager who was fired when he took leave after suffering a work-related injury; A worker in a food processing plant who tried to return to his regular job after he recovered from a serious burn injury but was refused; and. A bookkeeper who was fired while he was recovering from a back injury. Please contact our FMLA Lawyers if you believe your employer has violated the law. Our experienced Family and Medical Leave Act lawyers can help you understand your legal rights and the steps you need to take to protect your rights. We can also file a lawsuit if we think that it is warranted. Before filing a lawsuit, we often negotiate with employers to try to help you reach an FMLA settlement. If you have been fired from your job after taking leave, if you believe you are in danger of losing your job, or if your employer has told you that you may not take leave, call us or fill out an online contact form today.
