In our last post, we talked about the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and how it helps employees. Today, we want to continue the theme of looking at basic, but important, laws that protect employees and grant them rights. So let's talk about the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
As an employee, you have a number of rights and they protect you from feeling uncomfortable or threatened at work. They also go a long way to protect you from your employer acting in nefarious ways. That doesn't mean that your employer or fellow employees will respect these rights, but you do have them and you can take proper steps to uphold them.
