Dallas Family and Medical Leave Lawyer

The Family and Medical Leave Act (known as the "FMLA") provides the right for certain employees to take up to twelve weeks of unpaid medical leave every year. Additionally, the FMLA prohibits an employer from retaliating against an employee for taking FMLA leave. If your employer has denied you the right to take leave or has retaliated against you for taking leave, contact our Dallas FMLA lawyers today.

How much FMLA leave can I take? The FMLA requires certain employer to give employees up to twelve weeks of unpaid medical leave every year.  To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must have worked for the company for at least one year, with at least 1,250 hours worked in the previous year.  Additionally, the employer must have at least 50 employees within 75 miles of the worksite.

Am I required to take all my FMLA leave at once? No.  You can take intermittent FMLA leave.  For example, if you have a disability, you may take a intermittent leave to off to go to the doctor to seek treatment.  Taken intermittently, your twelve weeks of leave could last all year.

Can I take FMLA leave to care for my child? Yea.  The FMLA not only allows an employee to take time off for a personal injury, but the FMLA also provides employees with the right to take time off to care for immediate family members.  This can include parents, children, spouses, etc.  If you have been denied FMLA leave, contact our Dallas FMLA lawyers today.

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.
