Description: New York City, New York employment law lawyer represented Plaintiff who sued Defendants on a Family and Medical Leave Act violation theory.

"The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a federal law that allows eligible employees to take unpaid, job-protected leave for certain family and medical reasons. The FMLA was enacted in 1993 and applies to all public agencies, all public and private elementary and secondary schools, and companies with 50 or more employees.

To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must:

Have worked for the employer for at least 12 months.
Have worked at least 1,250 hours during the previous 12 months.
Be employed by an employer that is covered by the FMLA.

Eligible employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year for any of the following reasons:

The birth or placement of a child for adoption or foster care.
The care of a spouse, child, or parent with a serious health condition.
The employee's own serious health condition.

Employees who take FMLA leave are entitled to return to their same or an equivalent job at the end of their leave.

The FMLA is a complex law, and there are many exceptions to the eligibility requirements and the types of leave that are covered. If you are considering taking FMLA leave, it is important to speak with an attorney to understand your rights and options.

Here are some specific examples of how the FMLA can help employees:

An employee who needs to take time off to care for a newborn child can use FMLA leave to do so.
An employee who needs to take time off to care for a spouse or parent with a serious health condition can use FMLA leave to do so.
An employee who needs to take time off for their own serious health condition can use FMLA leave to do so.

The FMLA is a valuable benefit for employees, and it can help them to balance their work and family responsibilities. If you are eligible for FMLA leave, you should consider using it if you need to take time off for a family or medical reason."
