Can my Employer Fire me Because of my Migraines?

Employee Rights Attorney

 

No.

 

Migraine headaches are considered a serious health condition covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If your employer has 50 or more employees and you have worked there for at least a year, you have the right to take time off for migraines without being penalized by your employer.  You will need to complete FMLA paperwork. Click here to learn more about FMLA.

I worked for a retailer and was a Plaintiff in a class action for unpaid overtime wages. Hayber Law Firm did an amazing job of getting our unpaid overtime back to us. Every one at the firm that I dealt with through that process was wonderful to work with. I appreciate all they did for us more than you will ever know.
