Protecting Employee Rights In Lakewood
Our employment attorneys have extensive experience helping employees successfully bring claims for violation of the FMLA and CFRA. If you feel that you were terminated or discriminated against for exercising your right to family or medical leave, contact the FMLA attorneys at Southern California Employment Law Group PC to discuss your potential case. Call us at (424) 688-1057 or email us using the form on this page for a free consultation.
While some employers fire the employee during his or her protected leave, other employers are more subtle and wait until after the employee returns to work before terminating him or her. Even in those circumstances, an employee may still prevail under the FMLA/CFRA if the termination decision can be tied to taking the leave and it can be convincingly argued that any other reason offered by the employer for the decision (such as poor performance or restructuring) is pretextual, i.e. untrue.
Some other employers do not risk terminating the returning employee at all and instead find other ways to penalize him or her, such as a decrease in pay or reassignment to a less desirable location or department. Again, an employee may be able to prevail if these changes in the terms and conditions of employment can be connected to the FMLA/CFRA leave.
