FAMILY & MEDICAL LEAVE ACT VIOLATIONS
It is expected for an employee to have a good attendance at workplace. However, one can’t help being absent, especially if he/she or someone in the family has to deal with a serious health condition.
If you are a female employee, you might need to take some time off from your duties at work to give birth and care for your newborn child. When any of these situations happen to you, you must know that you are protected under the Family and Medical Leave Act or FMLA.

AND MEDICAL LEAVE ACT VIOLATION
Under this federal act, you can take an unpaid leave of up to 12 workweeks during any 12-month period, as long as you have worked under a particular employer for at least 12 months, worked for at least 1,250 hours within the said 12-month period, and that your employer have at least 50 employees within a 75-mile radius of the location where you work. These are just the basic eligibility rules for the FMLA, but sometimes, employers may take advantage of certain specific provisions in the act that could leave you in a dilemma.
