Medical Leave Lawyers Serving Austin

Our Employment Attorneys Fight For Your FMLA RightsOur employment lawyers represent employee who have either been denied medical leave or have been retaliated against for taking medical for a personal medical condition.  The Family and Medical Leave Act gives qualified employees the right to take medical leave to treat a serious medical condition. The FMLA also prohibits discrimination and retaliation based on the fact that an employee has taken FMLA leave. Contact our employment lawyers if you have been the victim of unlawful retaliation because you took medical leave.

What are the FMLA guidelines?To be eligible for FMLA leave, you must:
  1. have worked for a year or more,
  2. have worked 1,250 hours in the prior year, and
  3. the employer must have 50 employees who work within 75 miles of your worksite. 
However, the FMLA covers many local government and public educational employees, whether or not the employees match the above description.

How Much Leave Does the FMLA Allow?The FMLA guidelines allow employees the ability to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off each year.  This leave can either be for a personal medical condition or to care for a member of the immediate family with a serious health condition.

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.
