The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) is a particularly misunderstood statute with many component parts. At its core, it is designed to protect employees who take medical leave for themselves or their family.
FMLA litigation pitfalls are too numerous to mention.
You need an experienced attorney to handle FMLA claims, as there are many pitfalls for both the employee and employer in addressing these types of claims. FMLA claims usually end up being litigated in federal court and can often be decided on facts that you would not think important in your initial consideration of events.
The statute is very effective concerning issues of termination or demotion in response to FMLA leave
