El Paso FMLA Attorney
We Hold Employers Accountable For FMLA Violations
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is designed to protect employees from job loss or other adverse treatment while they cope with covered family situations. Under the Act, eligible employees are allowed up to 12 weeks of continuous or intermittent unpaid leave per 12-month period in order to:
- Care for a newly born or adopted child, or adjust to the addition of a foster child
- Recover from a serious health condition
- Care for a spouse, child or parent who has a serious health condition
- Cope with a qualifying hardship stemming from a family member being deployed to active duty
Whether you were fired for allegedly violating an absentee policy while you were on qualified leave or have returned to your job to find that your pay or benefits have changed, we can help you understand your legal rights and options.
Experienced employment law attorney Daniela Labinoti is knowledgeable in the laws regarding family and medical leave and will guide you through each step of the legal process.
If you have been unlawfully denied FMLA leave, discouraged from taking a qualified leave or have experienced adverse treatment by your employer as a result of taking FMLA leave, we are here to help. Contact us for a free initial consultation by calling our office in El Paso at 915-581-4600.
Understand Your Rights
When you suspect your FMLA rights have been violated, it is important to promptly speak to an attorney who will give you straightforward information regarding your case. The FMLA only applies to organizations with at least 50 employees, and it only covers employees who have worked with the organization for at least one year and have worked at least 1,250 hours within the past 12 months. This means that many part-time employees may not be covered.
