Case Conclusion Date: 07.17.2012
Practice Area: Employment and labor
Description: Plaintiff successfully argued in response to a Summary Judgment Motion that a person who was told by her Employer that she had FMLA coverage should be able to go to trial when fired because of her taking FMLA leave even if she did not meet all elements of eligibility under the FMLA under an estoppel theory. Plaintiff argued that she reasonably relied on the Employer representations. This is an FMLA case involving a somewhat rare situation.
