Family Medical Leave Act.

 

California and Federal law provides that certain employers must provide at least 12 weeks of leave for the employee’s own serious health condition, or the employee’s spouse or child’s serious health condition.  These protections are found under Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) and the California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”).  Sometimes employees need intermittent leave under these provisions.  Employers must reinstate employees at the conclusion of the leave.  If you believe you have been denied medical leave or your employer refused to reinstate you, you should seek legal advice.
