Employment & Labor: Employee Leaves

Employee leaves are challenging, particularly to small employers. State and federal leave laws overlap and sometimes conflict. Best & Flanagan’s Employment & Labor team advises employers on all issues that arise under leave, disability and injured worker statutes, including the:

  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Workers compensation laws
  • Minnesota Human Rights Act (MHRA)
  • Minnesota Women’s Economic Security Act (WESA), including safety leave
  • Minnesota Parenting Leave Act
  • Military leave laws, including USERRA

We assist our clients in drafting leave policies that match the unique corporate culture of each organization we serve, while also complying with the law. We ably and aggressively represent clients in litigation involving disputes over leaves of absence.
