Legal Tips for FMLA Leave

The FMLA leave lawyers at Dixon Injury Firm make a difference for employees in St. Louis.

Our lawyers will help you through the case for free and only take compensation in the case of a victory. You can contact us for more information. Below we answer a couple of questions many of our clients ask before starting one of these claims.

FMLA leave cases depend on several factors. For example, if your parents are in need of medical attention, you may be eligible for FMLA leave pay. If, however, your in-laws are in the same boat, FMLA doesn’t apply.

FMLA “time off” isn’t set. It’s better to think of FMLA being capped, or having maximum time/compensation for missed work.

Not everyone applies. One caveat of FMLA leave lawyers often encounter is the amount of time an employee has been with a particular company. This number is twelve months with 1,250 hours of work. There’s other factors too, which is why you should contact Dixon Injury Firm’s FMLA lawyers for more info.
