The Family Medical Leave Act (29 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.) is a federal law. The state of California has a counterpart to the FMLA called the California Family Rights Act (CFRA, California Government Code Section 12945.2). These laws both require that employers who employ 50 more people allow a worker to have a total of 12 weeks of unpaid leave during a 12 month period for an illness or medical condition affecting themselves or their family members. An employer in California cannot wrongfully deny a worker their rightful leave under the FMLA or the CFRA.

Under California law, this would be considered “wrongful termination.” Wrongful termination cases can arise for many reasons, including if an employer fires somebody for complaining about not receiving their wages or overtime. This can also include termination based on discrimination, such as firing someone based on their skin color, sexuality, gender, age, disability, marital status, religion, national origin, etc. At the Marcarian Law Firm, our Los Angeles discrimination attorneys will work diligently to investigate these cases so we can secure the compensation our clients deserve.
