Murray & Murray Obtains Settlement for a Veteran’s Home Worker Terminated after Taking Family Medical Leave

November 17, 2014

Murray & Murray Co., L.P.A., announces a recent $70,000 settlement on behalf of an employee who was terminated from his position at the Ohio Veteran’s Home after missing work to care for his child, who suffers from a debilitating condition. 

The employee’s child was born with a rare disease, which is caused by a cell division defect.  As a result of that condition, his child suffers chronic and life-threatening heart problems and seizures.  The child’s condition requires ongoing care and, at times, emergency treatment.  The employee sought to take protected leave to attend to his child’s treatment needs and he was terminated from his longtime employment with the Ohio Veteran’s Home.  Represented by Murray & Murray partners, Florence and Leslie Murray, the employee brought a lawsuit and alleged that he was denied protections provided under the federal law, the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).  The suit claimed that he was wrongfully terminated for taking leave that was legally protected under FMLA, alleging both: that the employer interfered with his benefits under the law; and, also wrongfully retaliated against the employee for exercising his protected rights.
