Job Benefits

My employment law cases are on the Case List page. The Case List page does not list many case which were settled or on which a judge did not write an opinion.

The Family and Medical Leave Act provides that you may take an unpaid leave without losing your job in certain situations. This Department of Labor website explains the rules.

Most employers with 20 or more employees must allow employees and their dependents to continue any health insurance plan at their own expense (at 2% over the group health plan cost) in certain situations. This Department of Labor website explains the rules for these so-called COBRA rights.

Both FMLA and COBRA are complicated laws. The Department of Labor site will give you some general information, but consulting an attorney about your situation (in advance, if possible) is usually the best route if your employer is not giving you the benefits you believe you deserve.

If you believe that your rights have been violated under one of these laws, please call my office to set up a consultation.
