Know your rights for mandated leave laws

In a recent blog post, we discussed some of the ways that the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) applies in specific circumstances. All employees should make sure that they understand how this law might impact their right to leave when they are impacted by a medical crisis or a family situation that falls under the umbrella of the act.

Does your employer make you work off the clock?

You may be one of those fortunate people in California who has found a job that is fulfilling and enjoyable. Perhaps you work with a group of people who are fun and uplifting. You consider your co-workers your friends, and you even spend time with them after work and on weekends.

How does family and medical leave apply to special groups?

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides much needed time off without having to worry about losing your job if you have medical needs to tend to or if you have to care for someone who has a medical issue.

Some termination reasons might be against the law

While employers have a right to end your employment without having to give you a reason, there are some reasons why they can't let you go. These are reasons that are forbidden by law. You can choose to take legal action if you are terminated for one of these reasons.

Filing a complaint about sexual harassment might be difficult

Filing a complaint regarding sexual harassment can be difficult for a victim. People who haven't ever been through this type of situation might not realize the emotional toll that it takes on the victim. This is one of the reasons why some victims of sexual harassment might not make complaints right away.
