Family And Medical Leave Act

Minneapolis Family And Medical Leave Act Attorneys

Parent with BabyLife is unpredictable. Sometimes, family situations and medical conditions make it impossible to continue working without taking a leave of absence. Fortunately, many employees are protected by the Family and Medical Leave Act.

At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, a Minneapolis, Minnesota, employment law firm, we advise clients on their rights under FMLA and provide zealous representation when employers infringe on those rights.

Experienced Twin Cities Employment Law Attorneys Representing Clients In Cases Involving FMLA Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act provides eligible employees with twelve weeks of unpaid leave in a 12-month period for a variety of reasons, including:

  • The birth of a child
  • Adoption of a child
  • Becoming a foster parent
  • A serious health condition
  • Caring for a spouse, child or parent with a serious health condition
  • Caring for a spouse, child or parent that is a military service member

During the time that the employee is on leave, his or her job is protected if:

  • He or she has worked for the employer for 12 months
  • He or she has worked for at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months preceding the leave
  • The private-sector employer has had at least 50 or more employees in the preceding calendar year or is a public agency

At LeBlanc Law & Mediation, we offer free initial consultations, giving clients the ability to ask questions and discuss their options with an experienced attorney. We take the time to learn about your goals and your circumstances, so that we can provide personalized advice to help you make informed decisions.
