Family Medical Leave Act Claims Attorney in Katy

Ensuring Employers Comply with the FMLA in Surrounding Areas

Have you been denied maternity leave or the ability to care for an injured loved one? Did you take medical leave and lose your job? If so, your employer may have violated the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and you may be entitled to compensation.

At the Law Office of Shane McClelland, we fight for the rights of workers throughout Texas. We represent employees who qualify under the Family Medical Leave Act.

Contact us online or call (713) 242-1302 to learn more about your rights under the FMLA.

FMLA Requirements

To qualify for FMLA leave, employees must:

  • Have 12 months of prior employment
  • Have worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months before requesting leave
  • Work for an employer with more than 50 employees within a 50-mile radius of its place of business

If you meet these requirements, you are entitled to FMLA leave. If you believe that your employer is violating any aspect of the FMLA, the Law Office of Shane McClelland can help.

Under the FMLA, the law requires employers to give eligible employees 12 weeks of unpaid leave:

  • When they suffer from a serious health condition
  • For the birth or adoption of a child
  • To care for oneself, a child, spouse, or parent suffering from a serious health condition

Deciding if your health condition qualifies as a serious health condition is fact-intensive – that is why you need to speak with an attorney about the facts of your case.

Employers often fail to restore employees to their original job when returning from FMLA leave. But if you qualify for FMLA leave, then your employer must fully restore you to your original job or an equivalent job with equivalent pay, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment.

If you use any of your 12 weeks of FMLA leave (even intermittent leave), then your employer cannot take away any benefits you have earned or were entitled to before using your FMLA leave.

Whatever your situation may entail, Katy FMLA attorney Shane McClelland can help. Call our office at (713) 242-1302 today to request a free case evaluation.
