Family & Medical Leave Act Passionately Fighting For You 

Denver Family & Medical Leave Act Attorneys

Assistance with FMLA Concerns

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requires employers to provide up to 90 days of unpaid leave a year to employees who are ill or who require time off to care for ill family members.

Employees are eligible to receive FMLA leave:

  • After they have worked for an employer for one year; and
  • If the employer has at least 50 employees employed within a 75-mile radius.

FMLA leave is not an automatic right; it must be requested by the employee.

Employers are prohibited from discriminating or retaliating against employees who take FMLA leave. FMLA leave can be taken in small increments or in a block of time, as required by the employee.

FMLA Claims & Compensation

Under FMLA, employees can recover economic damages and attorney fees. Although employees cannot be awarded emotional distress or punitive damages, they can get double damages (“liquidated damages”) if they can prove the discrimination was “willful.”
