FMLA Lawsuit Filed in Connecticut Federal Court

Sabatini and Associates has filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in Connecticut federal court against a major Connecticut employer. The lawsuit alleges that the employer unlawfully used our client's FMLA-protected leave as a negative factor in selecting him for termination. It is illegal for an employer to use FMLA-protected leave as a negative factor in deciding to terminate an employee's job. The very purpose of the FMLA is to allow people to take a medical or family leave of absence without fear of losing his/her job. When employers cite FMLA-protected leave as a factor in deciding to fire an employee, the employer interferes with the FMLA; and thus, violates the law.
