Medical leave denial and retaliation

As an employee, you do your best to provide your employer with a high level of service. Unfortunately, there may be times when you are unable to work, such as if you are dealing with a serious illness.

While most employers understand that it's never easy to deal with an illness, others look down on this. In fact, they become so upset with people who try to take medical leave that it leads them to break the law.

There are many workplace problems related to the use of disability or medical leave. Some of the issues that you could face include:

  • Pressure to return to your position before you are able to do so
  • Problems using sick time
  • Refusal to give you time off to care for a child, parent or spouse who is dealing with a serious illness
  • Retaliation for using medical leave, such as by taking away job responsibilities or terminating your employment altogether

At our law firm, we know that some employers will do whatever it takes to make life easier on their employees. We also know that there are companies that don't care about the law, thus doing whatever they think is best.

If you find yourself dealing with any type of medical leave denial or retaliation, you don't want to sit back and let your employer control you. You have legal rights and you need to know what they are. You are in a difficult position, but you have to take care of yourself and/or your family. This may lead to a situation in which you have to learn more about the actions you can take against your employer.
