Employment Lawyers Fighting for Workers’ Rights in New Jersey, Pennsylvania & Throughout the United States

Family and Medical Leave Act

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) guarantees most employees the right to take leave for their own or their family member’s serious health condition without fear of retaliation.  To be eligible to take protected leave under the FMLA, you must:

(1) have worked for your current employer for at least one year;

(2) have worked at least 1,250 hours in the year preceding your leave (about 24 hours per week); and

(3) work for an employer which employs at least 50 employees within 75 miles of your job site.

If you are eligible, you have a right to take protected FMLA leave for your own or a family member’s serious health condition for up to 12 weeks per year.  If you believe you have been denied any rights under the FMLA, please call one of our experienced FMLA New Jersey and Pennsylvania employment attorneys today.

In order for you to be considered to be a covered employee under the FMLA, you must:

  •  Have worked for a minimum of one year for your current employer;
  • Have worked 1,250 hours or more in the year before your requested leave; and
  • Work for a covered employer.
