Employment Law

Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

If you are pregnant, ill, or you need to care for an ill family member, the Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and New Jersey’s Family Leave Act protect your rights as an employee.

However, employers do not always honor these rights and protections. If your employer failed to provide you with the allowed leave or retaliated against you for taking allowed time off from work, talk with a FMLA lawyer about your legal options. At Goldman Davis Krumholz & Dillon, P.C., we will work to protect your rights under the FMLA and New Jersey Family Leave Acts. As a firm, we can handle a broad range of Family Medical Leave Act claims involving:

  • Denial of FMLA benefits
  • Withdrawal of FMLA Benefits
  • Termination of an employee entitled to FMLA leave
  • Failure to promote or rehire an employee who took            FMLA leave
  • Demotion of an employee once he or she returned            from leave
  • Elimination of an employee’s position

In some cases, it may be better to file a claim under the federal act, while in others, it is best to file through the state. This depends on your case and the option that offers you better protections and chance for a successful outcome. Your case will be handled in its entirety by an experienced FMLA lawyer, who will thoroughly review your claim and advise on the best option for you.
