Respond Appropriately To Leave Of Absence Requests
There are many circumstances in which your employees’ jobs are protected when they take time off to recover from a serious injury or illness, or to care of a sick family member or a new baby. Our attorneys advise employers on how to respond when an employee requests a leave of absence for medical or family reasons. We also inform on what to do if long-term or frequent absences of an employee create an undue hardship to your business.
Our lawyers are experienced at counseling employers with respect to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and other types of leaves. We also represent employers when an employee or a government agency has filed a complaint or lawsuit against the business for failing to provide FMLA leave.
