To keep employees healthy and happy, most companies are expected to provide some or all of their staff the ability to file a leave of absence when they need to have an extended break or hiatus. While not all employees will be entitled to the entire range of leave of absence (LOA) benefits, those who do should not have to face an uphill struggle to get their requests approved. All across the country, however, LOA claims are disputed and serious legal trouble can sprout from the issue.
Defending Your Protected Rights
When an employee requests a leave of absence, they need to do so for a valid reason. Following are some of the reasons for a leave of absence that are protected under employment law:
- Physical and mental disabilities
- Serious injury or illness
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Family or caregiver responsibilities
- Service to the military
Most matters addressed by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are also considered a protected leave of absence. If you are being denied a LOA that is based on a protected reason, take action by calling us at (713) 581-9001.
