Retaliation for Taking Medical or Disability Leave
Before federal and state medical and disability leave laws were passed, employees facing serious medical challenges could be fired and discriminated against at will by employers. Now, however, a broad set of laws and government regulations protect employees facing medical issues.
Unfortunately, employers routinely ignore or misinterpret the employment laws that are in place to protect you, including:
- Disability laws
- The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- The California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
- Pregnancy Disability Leave Law (PDLL)
If you have taken time off to care for yourself, to obtain medical care or to care for a family member and your employer has retaliated by harassing or firing you, we can help. The Long Beach and Los Angeles, California, medical and disability leave law firm of Lyon Law has helped thousands of workers and employees in the greater Los Angeles area.
Have you been denied disability leave or paternity time? Has your employer retaliated against you in regard to medical-related time away from work? Contact Lyon Law at (562) 426-2112 for experienced legal help.
California and federal laws provide time-off rights for a broad range of medical-related issues. For example:
- Are you receiving workers compensation payments and need time off from work to recover?
- Were you injured in a non-work-related injury?
- Does an injured or ill family member need your care?
- Do you need bed rest, prenatal care, post-birth care or child-bonding time relating to a pregnancy?
- Are you having medical issues because of high stress, or do you suffer from an emotional or psychological issue?
Do not capitulate to your employer's demands, intimidation or termination without first speaking to an experienced employment law attorney regarding your medical and disability leave rights. At Lyon law, attorney Geoff Lyon can provide knowledgeable and experienced legal counsel and representation.
