This Complaint asserts claims under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). It is intended for employees of private employers and is based on federal law. It does not address potentially relevant state law causes of action; thus you should check any relevant state and local laws. This template includes practical guidance, drafting notes and alternate and optional clauses. For more information on FMLA interference and retaliation claims and litigation strategies, see FMLA Interference and Retaliation Claims and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Litigation Defense Strategies. For more information on the FMLA generally, see FMLA Leave: Guidance for Employers and Employees and ADA and FMLA Comparison Chart.
