The lighter side of the job

This blog is primarily meant as a serious endeavor. The postings are written with the aim of giving you information about your rights as an employee. This particular post is a bit different. It recounts some of the more unique employment cases and laws that have existed over the years. All cases discussed here are a matter of public record and were not necessarily handled by this firm.

Emergencies and the Family and Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medical Leave Act, otherwise known as the FMLA, exists to allow employees up to twelve weeks a year of (unpaid) time off to provide temporary care for loved ones who are unable to care for themselves. Upon returning to work, the employee is required to be reinstituted into his or her old position with the same benefits and salary he or she enjoyed prior to taking leave.
