Philadelphia FMLA Lawyers Discuss What Happens if Your FMLA Leave is Denied

May 15th, 2017

Philadelphia FMLA Lawyers Discuss What Happens if Your FMLA Leave is DeniedThe Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was created to protect and assist covered employees who need time away from work for medical or other family-related reasons. Under the Act, employees can request up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to deal with a serious medical condition of their own or of a family member, or the birth or adoption of a child.

When a request for leave is made, the employer can ask for information on the medical condition, the reason for the leave, contact information for the verifying physician, and more. Based on this information, your employer may attempt to deny your petition if he or she disagrees with your doctor’s FMLA certification.

Your employer can reject a certification, and ask for additional information in limited circumstances, and through certain procedures. Although, when your employer goes beyond what the FMLA allows, your employer could be liable for interfering with your FMLA rights. For full clarification, you may need legal guidance to protect your rights and ensure you get what is due.

If you believe your rights under the FMLA have been violated, call the Philadelphia FMLA lawyers at The Gold Law Firm P.C. at 215-569-1999. You can also contact us online for a free consultation. We promise powerful and compassionate advocacy for your case. Our office is centrally located in Philadelphia, and we represent clients throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
