Disability and Leave Review

Legal papers lawyers placeholder image

G&A specializes in helping injured employees who can no longer perform one or more of their job duties, or who may not be able to return to work. Many times, employers unfairly threaten to terminate an injured employee who is unable to return to work due their injury. You may also have the right to be absent from work to care for yourself or a family member who suffers from a “serious health condition”. Whether the injury/illness occurred on or off duty, experienced attorneys at G&A can provide you advice to protect your rights.

Disability and Leave Review areas of expertise

Leave Rights

The California Family Rights Act (CRFA) and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provide time to care for your (or a family member’s) serious health condition. Your employer must employ 50 or more employees. You must have been employed at least 12 months and worked at least 1,250 hours in the previous 12-month period. The CRFA and FMLA provide you the right to be absent from work for twelve (12) weeks if your (or a family member’s) injury or illness qualifies as a “serious health condition”.

Disability Rights

If you are unable to perform your job duties, you may qualify for State Disability (SDI).
