San Antonio Self Medical Leave Lawyer

Our San Antonio employment lawyers represent employees who have been unlawfully denied the right to take medical leave for a personal and serious medical condition.
Federal and state laws require some employers to allow employees the ability to take medical leave to treat a serious health condition.  Covered employers may not deny employees the right to take this medical leave.  Additionally, covered employers may not discriminated or retaliate against employees for taking such leave.  These laws protect against termination, suspension, demotion, or other adverse employment actions.
The main law that provides this coverage is the Family and Medical Leave Act, often referred to as the FMLA.  In addition to the FMLA, many states provide employees needing medical leave with additional rights to extend those rights provided by federal law.

What are the requirements to be covered by FMLA?There are three main requirements that must be met to qualify for FMLA.  First, an employee must have worked for the employer for a year or more.  Second, the employee must have worked at least 1,250 hours in the prior year.  Third, the employer must have at least 50 employees who work within 75 miles of your work location.
However, certain government and educational employees are covered regardless of the above requirements.  If you are denied FMLA medical leave, contact our San Antonio employment lawyers immediately.

How much FMLA leave can I take?Covered employees have the right to take up to twelve weeks of leave in a 12-month period. This leave, however, does not necessarily have to be paid.  For example, many employers will elect to pay employees accrued vacation/sick during this period; however, many employees will elect not to pay accrued vacation/sick time during this period.  There are strict requirements that employers must follow when an employee takes leave.  If you believe that your employer is violating FMLA regulations, contact our San Antonio employment attorneys 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.
