Family Medical Leave Act / FMLA Attorney in Chicago
Did you or an immediate family member have a serious health condition that forced you to miss work? Or do you need a leave of absence from work for the birth or adoption of a child? If you answered yes to either of these questions and are covered by the FMLA, your employer may be required to give you up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave, continue your group insurance coverage, and restore your job at the end of your leave.
How do you know if you’re covered by the FMLA? You need to have worked for your employer for at least one year, worked at least 1,250 hours in the last year, and worked for a company that employs at least 50 employees within 75 miles of the location where you work.
Contact our Chicago FMLA lawyers today for a free, confidential consultation if:
- Your employer denied your request for a leave of absence; or
- Your employer terminated you during your leave of absence or failed to restore your job at the end of your leave.
