South Florida Disability Discrimination

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 set landmark standards for the protection of workers whose personal health or the health of a loved one requires extended time away from work. Under the FMLA, employees are able to take up to 12 weeks of consecutive or intermittent unpaid leave from work while retaining the security of their jobs. At the end of that time away from work, the employee must be able to return to work in the job he or she held prior to taking leave or a substantially similar position.

Employees need this kind of work-life balance, particularly when a sudden illness or disability comes up. Unfortunately, many employers see disabilities or a worker's desire to take legally protected leave as a burden — one they do not want to support. As a result, employers may engage in discriminatory activity and fail to uphold the standards set by employment law regulations.
