Medical Leaves of Absence

Tower Legal Group is an experienced employment law firm that deals in Medical Leaves of Absence violations.

Medical Leave of Absence

The California Family Rights Act (CFRA), or its federal counter-part the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), protect workers whom need medical leaves of absences for themselves or their family members.  Qualifying Employees with over 1 year work history are entitled to 12 weeks of medical leave per year.  In addition, a Reasonable Accommodation can be extending the leave beyond 12 weeks, provided the leave is finite.


Under the FEHA, ‘reasonable accommodation’ means a modification or adjustment to the workplace that enables the employee to perform the essential functions of the job held or desired.  Reasonable accommodations can permit the employee to continue working and performing the Essential Functions, instead of requiring a medical leave of absence.  Reasonable Accommodations can also be temporary light duty assignments, or granting medical leave of absence, to allow the employee to recover sufficiently to return to work.

If you or a close family member are struggling with your employer regarding medical leaves of absence, please call one of our experienced attorneys at Tower Legal Group so we can get started fighting for you Leave rights.
