FMLA & Discrimination

Wisconsin FMLA Medical Leave Discrimination Lawyers

What Are Your FMLA Rights on Medical Leave?

The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), allows employees to take time off after
the birth of a child, to receive treatment for a serious health condition, or to take care of a sick family member without the risk of losing their job.

Pregnancy Leave and Maternity Leave

In order to be eligible for FMLA leave, you must have worked for your employer for at least 12 months, and your employer must have 50 or more employees.


Protections under FMLA include:

  • Retaining the same benefits on leave that you enjoyed while actively working
  • The right to return to the same job after your leave has ended or be placed in a similar job with the same benefits and comparable pay
  • Employers are barred from discriminating or attempting to retaliate against you for taking FMLA leave
  • Employers cannot seek to impede or deny the rights you are guaranteed under FMLA.

Working Hard to Hold Employers Accountable

Our attorneys work with investigators, computer specialists and other experts, subpoenaing company e-mails, memos, human resources records and other documents that may reveal a pattern of medical condition discrimination in relation to requests for FMLA leave.

Do You Have a Medical Leave Case?

Not all forms of FMLA discrimination are obvious. For instance, an employer may seek to make a job impossible for an employee who has announced they will be taking FMLA leave after giving birth, to car for a sick family member or for maternity leave. This is done to force the employee to quit before the employer has to provide FMLA leave. Or, an employer may create another reason to terminate an employee.
