When a Manager Makes Even One Stupid Comment After an FMLA Request, the Employer Pays the Price
FMLA InsightsLink to more items from this source
Oct. 1, 2015

"[W]hat was his supervisor's response to Jim about his FMLA request? A one-liner: The Company 'paid for [Jim's] insurance and thus expected him to be at work.' That's it. That's all the boss said. Oh yeah, the boss also allegedly 'appeared frustrated and aggravated' when Jim turned in his FMLA paperwork. Whatever that means. One ill-advised comment. That's all it took, since the court reviewing Jim's FMLA claim found that this one remark (along with the 'frustrated and aggravated' look, of course) was enough to allow a jury to consider whether the Company violated the law." [Hefti v. Brunk Ind. Inc., No. 14-C-729 (E.D. Wis. Sept. 23, 2015)]
