Marlton, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/27/2018 -- The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, employment and severance agreement lawyers of Philadelphia, also represents individuals who have experienced retaliation from exercising their rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Under the FMLA, eligible employees can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid and protected leave. If you believe that your employer has violated or interfered with your FMLA rights, contact The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC by calling 800-406-8013.

Under the FMLA, Federal law requires that covered employers allow eligible employees to time off for a serious medical condition. Not all employers know the rules. Some employers know the rules, but don't follow them. Take a look at the following two situations, which are common examples of FMLA claims.

An employer discourages an employee from taking time off, after he or she has submitted the FMLA paperwork, stating, "this really is not a good time." Employers must not make subtle disapprovals or outright threats at FMLA requests and must return the employee to the same position with the same pay when he or she comes back to work. An employer cannot interfere with an employee's right to take leave under the FMLA.

An employee returns from medical leave and is terminated a very short time thereafter, sometimes within a week of returning. The reason is for something that happened prior to the beginning of the employee's leave, and the employer now decides that the employee should be terminated for that reason.

The employment and severance agreement attorneys of Philadelphia at The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC will listen to you to see if your situation presents a possible FMLA claim. For more information, visit or call 800-406-8013.
