Helping Clients With Cases Involving The Family And Medical Leave Act
Cases involving the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) can be complex. Doing this on your own can bring headaches and misunderstandings. Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C., has stepped in and helped clients move forward with their lives. With over 100 years of combined experience, our employment law attorneys have helped people in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.
What Exactly Is The Family And Medical Leave Act?
Our goal is to address the needs and concerns of every person who walks through our doors. Many people are simply unaware of their rights. Simply put, the FMLA guarantees eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave each year. You cannot lose your job for taking this time off, and your employers are required to maintain your health benefits. This is enforced by law.
Eligible employees are considered anyone working for a public agency, including state, federal and local employers. For private companies, it applies to those with 50 or more employees for at least 20 workweeks. Your employer cannot terminate you or hold this against you in any way. Whether you are taking time off to care for your newborn or suffering from a serious health condition, we can help enforce your rights.
