Cancer Leave

Employees have the right to be treated fairly in the workplace regardless of their age, race, gender or disability. In fact, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was created specifically to ensure that disabled workers are provided with the necessary accommodations and not discriminated against. If you or a loved one was mistreated at work, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced employment law attorney.

California Employment Counsel, APC, representing clients in Orange County and throughout the state, is prepared to offer legal advice and guidance to employees facing a wide array of issues. In recent years, the government has taken great strides in ensuring the fair treatment of employees with disabilities. The ADA was specifically amended to include cancer. Title I of the ADA provides protections for workers with cancer. Our lawyers can listen to the facts of your case and educate you on your legal options.

Cancer And The Family And Medical Leave Act

One powerful tool at an employee's disposal is the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If eligible, an employee can take a lengthy unpaid leave from work and still have a position to return to under the FMLA.

Your attorney can describe the specifics about how the FMLA relates to your situation, but in short, you might be eligible to take leave if you are unable to work because of a serious illness. Cancer and the treatment of cancer can fit into this criterion. Do not hesitate to discuss your case with a skilled lawyer.
