Family and Medical Leave Act

Montgomery County FMLA Lawyer

Protecting Workers' Rights in Eastern Pennsylvania

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was created to protect the rights of qualifying workers who need to take time off from work for the birth of a child or to take care of a serious medical condition for themselves, a child or a spouse. Despite the protections afforded by the FMLA, many employers do not understand the protections of the FMLA or they discourage their workers from taking time off as permitted by the law. In addition, some employers have retaliated against their employees for making use of the rights available under the law.

Kimberly H. Ashbach, Esq. is an experienced Pennsylvania employment law attorney who understands the intricacies of the FMLA and the protections it allows under law. She can help you understand how the law applies to you in many different situations, such as:

  • Failure to advise you of your rights
  • Denial of leave requests
  • Failure to advise you of the availability of intermittent leave
  • Making illegal medical inquiries
  • Replacing your job position
  • Denying you a promotion as result of your use of the FMLA
  • Discriminating against you for any reason upon your return from FMLA

You Must Notify Your Employer

The FMLA has requirements for you as the employee to notify the employer of your need for the leave and to keep your employer apprised of your qualifying medical condition. It is important to know your responsibilities under the FMLA so that you may avail yourself of rights under the law.

Special Considerations for Military Families

The FMLA allows for eligible employees with a spouse or child in active-duty in the military to use their leave to address certain military events such as arranging for child care, taking care of family legal arrangements, attending counseling and attending post-employment "reintegration." If you are a member of the military, it is important that you know your rights.

We really can't say enough about Kim. She took on our case when even the 'big' law firms in Philadelphia were reluctant, as our legal problem was very unique and many lawyers hadn't really ever heard of what we were trying to accomplish... However, due to Kim's extremely competent, professional and tenacious manner, it wasn't long before we saw our matter resolved to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend her as an attorney. Thank you, Kim, for a great job. You made a tremendous difference in two people's lives!
