Houston FMLA Retaliation Lawyers
Did Your Employer Punish You For Taking FMLA Leave?
It is illegal for your employer to punish you for taking time off from work as you are allowed to do under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). This law exists to protect and assist employees facing extenuating medical and family circumstances — not to give your employer a reason to fire you. At Kennard Law, P.C., our FMLA retaliation attorneys in Houston are here to help protect your rights.
If your employer has retaliated against you for taking FMLA leave, callKennard Law, P.C. at (855) 499-4514 today. Our attorneys are dedicated advocates for victims of FMLA retaliation.
FMLA Leave & Wrongful Termination
When you take leave under FMLA, you should be able to expect your job to be there for you when you return. In far too many cases, though, employees take family or medical leave and later find that their job is not waiting for them when they try to go back to work. While the employer may provide reasons for the termination, often it amounts to retaliation for taking FMLA leave.
If you have been the victim of this kind of FMLA retaliation, discuss your case as soon as possible with an employment lawyer at Kennard Law, P.C. We can investigate your case and work on your behalf to make things right, whether that means helping you get your job back or helping you receive full and fair compensation.
Other Forms Of FMLA Retaliation
Retaliation in the workplace can be blatant or subtle.
Harassment is a blatant form of FMLA retaliation, but it may also involve:
- Unfair disciplinary action
- Denial of a raise or promotion
- Denial of employment benefits
- Being unfairly assigned the most undesirable tasks
Illegal retaliation can also come from co-workers. If a co-worker has retaliated against you in any way for taking FMLA leave, report the retaliation to your employer. Your employer is responsible for appropriately addressing retaliation and harassment in the workplace. If your employer fails to address the issue appropriately, do not hesitate to contact Kennard Law, P.C. We can help.
