Grand Rapids FMLA Lawyers

Experienced Michigan Family Medical Leave Act Attorneys

The federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides protections for employees in numerous situations, including the pending birth or adoption of a child, illness, the illness of a family member or the need to care for a service member. Employees who qualify for leave under the act have the right to:

  • Go on leave
  • Return to the same job they left
  • Receive health benefits while on leave
  • Have employee benefits reinstated upon his or her return to work

If you believe you qualify for benefits under the FMLA and your employer has denied your leave request, fired you or not allowed you to return to work following your leave, contact the Grand Rapids FMLA attorneys of McDonald Pierangeli Macfarlane, PLLC.

We are experienced trial lawyers serving the state of Michigan. Has your employer fired you upon FMLA leave, then said the termination was due to another issue, like incompetence, job elimination, insubordination or downsizing? Has your employer refused to allow you to take leave under the FMLA?

We can conduct an investigation and then prepare and evaluate your case and, if appropriate, provide representation in negotiations and court.

We are a small firm with big-firm experience. We can provide the supportive assistance you need when your job and income are in jeopardy, along with the aggressive representation you need when your employer ignores the laws that protect you. For more information and to schedule a consultation, please contact our office.
