Specific Case Information
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) require employers to provide temporary medical or family leave to eligible employees. The mandates ensure an employee can return to the original or comparable position.
Failure to provide eligible employees with this benefit can result in an employer paying damages. An employer with 50 or more employees must allow those who have been with a company for more than a year and worked a minimum of 1,250 hours in the prior 12-month period to take family or medical leave.
Employers cannot discriminate against, suspend, or fire an employee who exercises the right to take such leave. The circumstances that qualify as conditions for leave are a serious health condition of the worker, spouse, child, or parent that requires continuing medical treatment or inpatient care.
Both men and women have the right to family leave when a child is born or adopted. Twelve weeks of unpaid leave is commonly allowed in a one-year period. During that time, the employee must be allowed to maintain his or her seniority and benefits within a company.
