We are a team of experienced Los Angeles medical leave retaliation attorneys dedicated to protecting your rights and holding employers accountable for unlawful practices.

Medical Leave Laws in California

California offers robust protections for employees through two fundamental laws:

  • The California Family Rights Act (CFRA): This law applies to companies with 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius. It guarantees eligible employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year for serious medical conditions, childbirth, or caring for a family member with a serious health condition.
  • The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA): This federal law applies to companies with 50 or more employees within a 75-mile radius and provides eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave for reasons similar to CFRA.

What Constitutes Medical Leave Retaliation

It is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you for exercising your rights under CFRA or FMLA. Here are some examples of employer actions that could be considered retaliation:

  • Denial of leave: Unreasonably denying a legitimate request for medical leave.
  • Termination: Firing you, demoting you, or laying you off after requesting or taking medical leave.
  • Negative performance reviews: Giving you a negative performance review or disciplinary action after requesting or taking medical leave.
  • Reduced work hours or job duties: Assigning you fewer hours or negatively changing your job responsibilities upon your return from leave.
  • Exclusion from projects or opportunities: Deliberately excluding you from important projects or opportunities after returning from leave.
  • Hostile work environment: Creating a hostile or intimidating environment after requesting or taking medical leave.
