Family Discrimination

Our law firm represents workers who qualify for protection under the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993.

Have you been denied maternity leave or a medical accommodation because of Family Discrimination? Call Houston employment lawyer Shane A. McClelland for a free case evaluation 713-987-7107.

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) requires employers to give twelve weeks of unpaid leave to an eligible employee who suffers from a serious health condition, for the birth or adoption of a child or to care for oneself or a child, spouse or parent suffering from a serious health condition.

Determining whether your condition qualifies as a serious health condition is fact-specific. Please contact us today so we can help you determine if your employer must provide you with FMLA leave.

If you qualify for FMLA leave, then your employer must restore you to your original job. They may also have to restore you to an equivalent job with equivalent pay, benefits and other terms and conditions of employment. Also, your employer cannot take away any employment benefit that you have earned before using FMLA leave.

To be eligible for FMLA leave, your employer must have 50 employees, and you must have been employed for at least twelve months and must have worked at least 1,250 hours during the twelve months prior to the leave.

An employer is required to provide 12 weeks of FMLA leave in every 12 month period.
