Legal Help For Workers Deprived Of Medical Or Disability Leave
Under both federal law (Family and Medical Leave Act or FMLA) and state law (California Family Rights Act or CFRA), employees are entitled to medical leave benefits for their own health issues or to care for family members. Business owners who refuse to allow leave or who terminate, suspend or demote workers for taking that leave may be violating federal and state law.
Attorney Miguel S. Ramirez works to protect the rights of workers who have been denied disability and medical leave or who suffered retaliation for doing so. You can count on our experience, compassion for your situation, and proven legal skills to get results. We fight hard for the time you need with your family. Call today: 213-975-0003. Your initial consultation is free of charge.
We Enforce Your FMLA Or CFRA Rights
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act and the California Family Rights Act, employees are allowed to take job-protected leave:
- To care for a seriously ill family member
- To attend to their own serious health or medical condition
- To care for a newborn or newly adopted child
- To place a child for adoption or foster care
No employee plans on health, medical or disability emergencies that can take him or her away from work. If you have qualified for paid or unpaid leave, and that leave has been denied, bring your concerns to the Law Offices of Miguel S. Ramirez right away. We will intervene to make sure you are able to take leave, and we will take legal action against an employer who refuses to honor your rights or retaliates against you.
