Getting healthy and back to work is a concern all injured people face. However, paid time off is meant to help those who are suffering. Cheney Galluzzi & Howard, LLC, can help you understand how this process works. We have handled personal injury cases for clients throughout Colorado. Our experienced and knowledgeable attorneys can answer all of your questions.
Proposition 118 is a state constitutional amendment that was passed during the 2020 election. It allows people to take 12 weeks of paid leave for serious family medical emergencies. It is funded by workers and employers. Previously, there was no guarantee at any time off. This change has helped our clients tremendously. It gives them time to focus on healing without having to worry about losing their job. Understandably, this was a concern that many people faced.
There are many reasons that constitute a need for this extended period of time off. Common examples include childbirth, abuse or sexual assault cases, adoption and an injured family member that is unable to care for themselves. It is also used for those who are recovering from a serious accident. Whatever your reasoning, it is important to discuss your options with a lawyer. We can discuss your concerns and determine what is best for you and your future.
