What are Protected Leaves?
A Protected Leave is defined as any time off from work that is guaranteed by state or federal laws. This means that your employer cannot fire you or retaliate against you for taking the time off. Some of the types of leave that are protected include:
✓ Time off for personal emergencies like family illness
✓ Pregnancy leave
✓ Medical emergency
✓ Time away to perform civic duties like voting
While time is of the essence in all of our cases, it is especially important in the case of a protected leave. The longer you go without collecting proof of your need for a protected leave, the harder it will be to get you paid.
