Tampa FMLA Attorney
Family & Medical Leave Act in Florida
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was created to protect employees taking time off for family or medical reasons. In addition to providing job-protected leave, employers cannot retaliate against employees for taking such leave. If an employer violates Florida's FMLA, the employee may be entitled to relief.
Under the FMLA, covered employees are entitled to up to 12 weeks of job-protected leave in a 12-month period for the following reasons:
- The birth of a child;
- The adoption or foster care of a child;
- The employee must care for a seriously ill or injured family member;
- The employee is suffering from a serious health condition that affects his or her ability to perform his or her essential job duties; or
- There is an urgent need for the employee to take time off because the employee’s son, daughter, spouse, or parent is an active member of the military.
