Family Medical Leave (FMLA) cases are complex. Employers who interfere with an employee's Family Medical Leave or discriminate or retaliate against an employee for using FMLA often attempt to mask their illegal conduct by falsely claiming legitimate reasons for adverse employment decisions. Once an employee asserts a FMLA interference or retaliation claim, many employers have the recourses to hire large corporate law firms to defend their actions.

Attorney Douglas J. Carroll, Jr., the founder and managing attorney at Carroll Law Firm, SC has the knowledge and experience to peel back the layers of management-speak and get at the truth. He has the skill and tenacity to effectively fight for justice regardless of the size and recourses of the employer or the law firm they hire.
