Understanding the FMLA and Your Rights

The FMLA serves as a shield for employees who require leave from their jobs. You may need leave for several weeks at a time due to maternity leave, mental health treatment, surgery, substance abuse treatment, or other qualified situations.  You may also need intermittent leave for short-term illnesses, doctor’s appointments, or flares of a serious health condition, and the FMLA ensures that you can take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave within a year without fear of losing your job or benefits. At Weiler Law PLLC, we are well-versed in the complexities of the FMLA and are committed to upholding your rights under this essential federal law. 

You may need FMLA leave for:

  • Your own serious health condition or illness
  • caring for family members
  • medical treatments or surgeries
  • adoption
