At some point, in almost every employees life, a medical issue will arise that requires the employee to take medical leave for their own health condition, or the health condition of a close family member (such as mother, father, spouse or child). Fortunately, the laws of our nation provide job protected medical leave to many of the employees in the Kansas City metropolitan area. That medical leave is known by most as Family and Medical Leave or FMLA. The laws surrounding the FMLA can be complicated and confusing, but fortunately, they in fact are very employee friendly.
Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
There are many circumstances that entitle employees to a legal right to take medical leave. Sometimes employers do not follow these laws or even take action against employees for exercising their right to take leave. In any case, the laws around medical leave are very complex. We take pride in clearly explaining and navigating the often foggy landscape of employee medical leave. We help our clients understand their right to take leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to help preserve their employment or if necessary pursue legal claims in court after an illegal termination.
