Family Medical Leave

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) imposes significant restrictions on a covered employer’s treatment of eligible employees who request, take and return from leave. Because the FMLA is a complex statute, with many important medical leave issues still unanswered, the FMLA remains an area where sound, practical, preventive advice can pay dividends to employers.

Harper Gerlach advises employers regarding the FMLA’s Notice, posting and record keeping requirements. In addition, we help businesses evaluate and process leave requests and defend charges of FMLA discrimination filed with the DOL as well as FMLA lawsuits filed in state and federal courts.
