FMLA Attorneys in Houston
Serving Victims Of FMLA Discrimination throughout Texas
The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was established by the government in order to protect and assist employees who face extenuating medical and family circumstances. FMLA allows employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year in order to care for a family member or recover from their own illness. There are, however, far too many instances when an employer interferes with a worker's right to this time off or retaliates because of an employee's FMLA leave. If you have been denied FMLA time off, or if your employer has punished you for taking it, Kennard Law, P.C., can help you obtain justice.
For a consultation with a skilled Houston FMLA lawyer, contact us today. We fight to protect the rights of employees in Houston and throughout Texas.

- Deal with the placement of a child into foster care
- Recover from their own serious illness
