Sacramento Denial of Medical Leave


Denial of Medical Leave

When you or a family member has fallen ill, or you are welcoming a new member of the family, there are laws in place that allow for time away from your job in order to care for yourself or your family.

If you are eligible, medical leave laws allow for up to 12 weeks of paid time off or up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected time off with benefits within a year. This time may be used to:

  • Care for and bond with your child after birth, adoption or foster care placement.
  • Care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition.
  • Heal when you are unable to work because of a serious health condition.

Many employers fail to notify their employees of these rights. The truth is: if you have worked for 1,250 hours within the last year, and your company has 50 or more employees, you are entitled to take up to 12 weeks of job-protected time off. Your job must be made available to you when you return. Unfortunately, some individuals are illegally fired or replaced during their time away.
