Raleigh Durham FMLA Violation Attorneys

Experience Make a Difference in Family & Medical Leave Act Cases

The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides employees who meet certain criteria with a means to balance their work and family responsibilities by taking unpaid leave for certain family and medical reasons.

For over thirty years, Glenn, Mills, Fisher & Mahoney, P.A. have been helping employees with FMLA Violations. If you are victim of a FMLA violation, please Contact Us immediately to protect your legal rights. The attorneys at GMFM will aggressively protect your rights as an employee. For a consultation, call us at (919) 683-2135.

FMLA Eligibility

The FMLA applies to public agencies and private business that engages in interstate commerce and employs at least 50 employees. In order to qualify for leave, employees must meet certain minimum requirements. These requirements include working for a covered employer for at least 12 months, providing at least 1,250 hours of service during the past 12 months, and working at a location where the employer has at least 50 employees within 75 miles.

FMLA Leave

Employers covered by the FMLA must provide certain employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during any 12-month period for the following reasons:

  • When an employee is unable to work because of the employee’s serious health condition;
  • Care for an immediate family member (spouse, child, or parent) with a serious health condition;
  • Birth and care of a newborn child, or placement of a child for adoption or foster care; or
  • Other qualifying exigencies related to the deployment or return of a family member (spouse, child, parent, or other closest living relative) from military service.

Covered employers must provide certain employees with up to 26 weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during a 12-month cycle to care for a member of the military who is injured or made ill in the line of duty.

Other FMLA Rights

An employee who returns to work following a period of family or medical leave is entitled to be restored to the same or an equivalent job, with the same benefits as existed when leave began.

The FMLA also prohibits employers from discriminating against or interfering with an employee because that employee has requested or taken family or medical leave.

GMFM represents employees who have been denied FMLA leave, who experienced the change of a job while on FMLA leave, or who have been terminated before or during FMLA leave. Our attorneys also advise clients who are considering taking FMLA leave, and work to ensure compliance with the notice and certification requirements.

Client Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Bill Mills on a fairly difficult and complicated matter. He showed a tremendous amount of sensitivity, understanding, compassion and patience during the times that we really needed it. Bill was very knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful. He was also extremely thorough, open, honest, and persistent in his efforts. Bill did not leave any stone unturned which made it possible for us to have a successful outcome. I highly recommend using Bill Mills and his firm.”

- Robert James

“Bill Mills is a fantastic trial attorney and the consummate professional. He is a tireless advocate, always well prepared, and genuinely cares about each and every client. I have had the privilege to co-counsel with Bill on two major cases, both of which resulted in excellent recoveries for our clients. Bill is a delightful person and a  pleasure to work with. I look forward to our next case together.”

- Irv Cantor, Attorney in Richmond, Va.

“I came to Glenn, Mills, Fisher, and Mahoney with an extremely difficult legal dilemma that seemed impossible to resolve fairly and favorably. I was completely floored–and relieved beyond belief–when Carlos Mahoney called the next day to let me know that he had found a way out of the morass. It was a brilliant solution. Mahoney and his assistant made a truly awful situation much easier to deal with because of the integrity which they brought to the work. They answered all my questions promptly. They never dropped the ball, and were always up to date on the issues when I called, which was no small feat, since the matter had many moving parts and extended over several years. Through it all, Mahoney offered truly wise counsel, making sure that my emotions did not get in the way of my interests. He also guided the case toward a conclusion that was far better than I ever hoped or imagined. I cannot recommend the firm more highly.”
