Milwaukee Federal FMLA Attorney
Insist on your right to take leave from work after the birth of a new baby, or to care for a seriously ill family member. If your Wisconsin employer is putting unfair obstacles in the way of lawful application of the Family and Medical Leave Act, contact federal FMLA attorney Alan C. Olson & Associates in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area to schedule a free initial phone consultation.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 applies to employers who have 50 or more employees, (who can be employed at more than one job site, as long as the sites are within 75 miles of each other). The law provides eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for: (1) the birth, adoption or foster care of a child; (2) care for an employee’s son, daughter, spouse, or parent who has a “serious health condition;” or (3) the employee’s own health condition, as defined by the Act.
The federal Act applies to employees who have been employed by their current employer for at least 52 weeks and have worked at least 1,250 hours in the 52 weeks preceding the leave.
Both the FMLA and Wisconsin law require continuation of the same health insurance that was provided to the employee before the leave. Job reinstatement rights are also protected.
Know your rights and demand justice. Sometimes retaining an employment law attorney to advocate for you is what it takes to enforce your rights to take leave from work, return to your same job, and be free from retaliation.
