New Hampshire Family Medical Leave Attorneys

Reliable, Caring & Proven Trial Lawyers

Balancing the demands of work and family responsibilities is often difficult in today’s society. Federal employment law through the Family and Medical Leave Act, however, has been established to help employees faced with certain special family circumstances. If you believe your rights have been violated under this federal law, you should seek legal help from an attorney who practices employment law.

At Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C., we can listen to your claim, analyze it from a legal standpoint, and take the appropriate legal steps to assert your rights under the law in court. As proven trial lawyers with a strong track record of successful results, we have the leverage you need against offending employers and their insurance companies in seeking the justice you deserve in any Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) legal claim.

The Family and Medical Leave Act

The FMLA protects your job and benefits should you need to take a leave of absence for medical reasons or to take care of an ailing family member. The leave is unpaid, but you will not lose your job or the benefits you currently have.

Under the FMLA you are entitled to 12 weeks of leave within a 12-month time period for:

  • The birth and care of a child
  • The placement of a foster child or the adoption of a child
  • To care for a seriously ill spouse, child, or parent
  • To receive care for yourself due to a serious health condition
  • To handle any qualifying condition related to a child, spouse, or parent who is in the military

Leave can be extended to 26 weeks for the parent, spouse, or child of a military servicemember who has suffered a serious injury or illness.

Many requirements must be met to qualify for FMLA leave. Once you qualify, however, your right is guaranteed under the law. Should you take this leave, your employer is prohibited from retaliating against you in any way for the leave itself or for requesting it. At Douglas, Leonard & Garvey, P.C., we are proud to have protected this right for countless individuals who have sought representation from our family medical leave lawyers in New Hampshire.
