FMLA Discrimination

Many employees in West Virginia are entitled to up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). However, some employers would rather terminate an employee than allow him or her to take leave. If this has happened to you, we can help.

At McQueen Davis PLLC in Huntington, we take pride in our ability to help individuals through complex and frustrating employment matters. Because we have been doing this for decades, we have earned a strong reputation among judges and others in the legal community as competent trial attorneys. We will use our skills and experience to seek the outcome you deserve.

What Are Employees Entitled To?

According to federal law, the FMLA applies to individuals who work at companies that have more than 50 employees. In order to qualify for leave, an employee must have been working for his or her current employer for at least one year. An employee is required to provide an employer with proper notification of FMLA leave, which is at least 30 days before beginning leave or as much notice as is practicable.

An employer is not allowed to fire or otherwise retaliate against an employee simply because he or she took leave under the FMLA. If you are fired because of taking leave, it is considered FMLA discrimination, which is illegal. Our lawyers can help protect your rights by helping you seek compensation or reinstated employment.
