LEAVES OF ABSENCE

The attorneys at Campins Benham-Baker know how important it is to be able to take time off to deal with life’s big events.  We also know how often employers get it wrong when it comes to leaves of absence.  When you experience a major life event, such as the birth or adoption of a child, illness in the family, a military leave of absence (USERRA), or the need to care for an ailing loved one, you hope you can count on your employer to be understanding and flexible.  Even with the protections that may be available for you under state and federal law, such as the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), it can be confusing to navigate and understand your rights.  Although it is illegal for an employer to deny protected leaves of absence to eligible employees, or to retaliate against an employee for requesting or taking such a leave, we see it happen all too often. 

The attorneys at Campins Benham-Baker are available to consult with you to help understand your rights under these laws, and any rights under your employer's policies.  Likewise, we regularly take on employers who have broken these rules or retaliated against employees for requesting or taking leave.  We are committed to helping working families navigate these challenges. 

If you have questions about your rights or have experienced problems taking a leave of absence, contact Campins Benham-Baker today.
