In California, if you work for an employer for at least one year or longer and that employer employs more than 50 employees, you are entitled to up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to care for a serious health condition to either yourself or someone in your immediate family (parent, child, or spouse.) Additionally, pregnant employees who work for employers who employ over 5 people are also entitled to up to four months additional unpaid pregnancy leave. Employees with disabilities may be entitled to greater periods of leave if such leave is a reasonable accommodation for a disability.

Do you feel you were wrongfully denied the time to care for yourself, a family member with a serious illness, or to bond with a new child? Did your employer retaliate against you for requesting time off or taking leave? Talk to an experienced lawyer that knows your California Family Medical Leave (FMLA) rights. At the law office of Mr. Tetalman, we help protect your rights, your job, and your benefits. Give us a call today!
