High-Quality Representation Delivered With Compassion

Protective Leave Attorney in Long Beach, California

Protect Your Position at Work

The state of California has some of the strongest employee protection laws, which include protected leave. If your employer will not allow you to take leave or has threatened your position when you request leave, you can take steps to protect your job and receive time off.

Our employment attorneys at Lyon Legal, P.C., are dedicated to ensuring that employers in Southern California comply with state and federal employment laws, including protective leave requirements. Our legal team regularly assists employees who have been denied leave for medical, military, or other personal considerations.

Receive the Required Coverage and Time Off

When you qualify for time off, your supervisor cannot retaliate against you for exercising your rights. If you mention that you may go on leave or formally apply for leave at work, you are protected from retaliatory acts, which include:

  • A pay decrease or demotion

  • Job termination

  • A reduction in job duties

In California, workers who return from leave are guaranteed their position or a similar position. Our lawyers design aggressive strategies to defend our clients when their employers violate provisions provided by:

  • California Family Rights Act (CFRA)

  • Family and Medical Leave Act

  • Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL)

  • The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)

We have successfully defended employees who have qualified for short-term disability leave, maternity leave, and military leave. We work to ensure that you receive coverage for the appropriate time period while securing the benefits and pay that you are entitled to receive during your absence.
