San Antonio Family and Medical Leave Lawyer

Our San Antonio employment lawyers represent employees who have wrongfully been denied leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act ("FMLA").  The FMLA requires some employers to give employees the ability to take medical leave.  The FMLA, however, is highly complex and mechanical in nature.  Contact our San Antonio FMLA attorneys if you have been denied the ability to take leave or if you have been fired for taking leave.

Contact our San Antonio Employment Lawyers to Understand Your FMLA RightsThe FMLA is the primary federal law that protects an employee's right to take leave for a serious personal health issue.  Additionally, the FMLA allows employees to take time off to care for certain family members. 
The FMLA, however, only applies to certain employers and employees. Generally, an employees must have been employed for a year or more and have worked 1,250 hours in the previous year.  Also, an employer must have 50 or more employees who work within 75 miles of your workplace.  There are other exceptions to the FMLA for certain public agencies and educational institutions.
Leave taken under the FMLA may be paid or unpaid.  This is often up to the employer's policy and may vary from state to state.  Additionally, an employee who qualifies for FMLA leave may take up to twelve weeks of leave a year.  The year used for FMLA leave does not have to be the same as the calender year.  It can be any rolling twelve-month period as established by the employer.
Employers may not discriminate against employees who take FMLA leave.  If you have been denied leave or have been discriminated against because you took FMLA leave, contact our San Antonio employment lawyers immediately.

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.
