Our Employment Lawyers Will Help You Navigate Through FMLA GuidelinesOur FMLA lawyers represent employees who are subjected to retaliation from their employers for taking family or self medical leave. If you have been retaliated against for taking FMLA leave, contact our FMLA lawyers today.

The FMLA Laws Offer Employees RightsThe Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”) provides qualified employees with the right to take up to twelve weeks of medical leave a year.  This leave can be taken for a personal medical issue or to care for an immediate family members.  This includes the birth or adoption of a child.

FMLA GuidelinesThe FMLA does not cover all employees.  To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must have been employer with the employer for at least twelve months.  Additionally, the employee must have work 1,250 hours within the last twelve months and the employer must have a total of 50 employees within 75 miles.  In addition to the above covered employers, many public and government agencies must provide FMLA leave.
The 12 weeks of leave do not have to be taken all at the same time.  An employee has the right to take intermittent leave.  This means that an employee can use their twelve weeks of FMLA leave in small time blocks throughout the year.

Our Employment Attorneys Fight Against Employers Who Violate Employee FMLA RightsIf you are eligible for FMLA leave and have either been denied leave or retaliated against for taking leave, contact our FMLA lawyers today.
Client Reviews
I would recommend the Law Office of Rob WIley, P.C. to anybody needing assistance with employment rights. They did an incredible job of handling my case professionally and in a very resonable time frame. In my initial consultation with Rob Wiley I was given a very straight forward analysis of my claims after which Fadi Yousef was the attorney assigned to my case. Working with Fadi was the best. He showed care and a true concern for the direction and result of my lawsuit. Fadi was always available and was in constant communication with me throughout. I thank Fadi Yousef, Rob Wiley and his team for doing a phenomenal job, they were an absolute pleasure to work with. R.G.
Rasha, Eric and Rob did it again a Second time around! I'll admit, they are truly the BEST employment lawyers out here in the Metroplex! Not only they won a case against my previous employer, they also won my unemployment insurance (UI) case as well! It is such a relief and a huge burden off my shoulders about not worrying how I'm going to pay my bills now and provide food for my family. I can't say enough how awesome they are and how far they go to make sure you are taken well care of. Thank you so much Rasha, Eric and Rob for all that you did for me! J.T.
Rasha Zeyadeh and Rob Wiley provided a very professional and comfortable experience. My case was tough being in Texas, but, Rasha worked very closely with me to get the best result possible. She was extremely open to listening to my concerns and suggestions, while using her expertise to guide me to the best result in my case. I would definitely recommend Rasha and Rob Wiley if you are in need of their type of service. I will use them again if needed! K.G.
