Work & Family Program

Many workers are forced to risk their jobs and income when they need a leave of absence or a workplace accommodation due to pregnancy, their own illness, or the need to care for a seriously ill family member. LAS-ELC’s Work and Family Program protects the employment rights of pregnant women, new parents, military families and other workers dealing with family and medical crises.

The Work & Family Helpline provides free, confidential legal advice about time off work, paid leave, and accommodations for pregnancy, parenting, breastfeeding, caring for an ill family member, or an employee’s own serious health condition.
