Central New Jersey Family Medical Leave Act Lawyer
Lawyers Handing FMLA Violations
Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the New Jersey Family Leave Act (NJFLA) employers must provide a covered employee with up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave in the event of illness, pregnancy, adoption or the need to care for a seriously ill family member.
However, some employers who are required to provide leave under the law refuse to do so. Other employees find that they are laid off during their absence, or are re-assigned to other duties when they return to work. These may be violations of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the New Jersey Family Leave Act.
At Hanan M. Isaacs, P.C., in Kingston, New Jersey, our attorneys help employees assert their rights under the law. If you are a covered employee and have been denied family leave, laid off while on leave, or re-assigned to another job upon your return to work, you may be entitled to compensation or re-instatement.
If you would like to discuss your potential FMLA violation, including those surrounding maternity leave, with an experienced employment law attorney, contact us at 609-683-7400 toll-free to arrange a consultation.

Conducting a Comprehensive Investigation
The provisions of the federal Family and Medical Leave Act and the New Jersey Family Leave Act are complicated. A careful examination of the facts is the only way to accurately determine your legal options and the remedies available to you.
In representing you, our lawyers will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the circumstances surrounding your case. If your case has merit, we will work to obtain re-instatement or compensation. We have been able to achieve results in many cases by negotiating with the employer. If necessary, we will go to trial to obtain justice for you.
2009 Changes in the New Jersey Family Leave Act
In 2009, the New Jersey Legislature passed a law providing for mandatory withholdings from employee paychecks to provide compensation during family or medical leave. Similar to unemployment benefits, the money you have paid in will be there when you need it.
