PITTSBURGH — A former employee is suing the U.S. Postal Service, citing alleged violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and wrongful termination.
Tiffany Alder filed a complaint on April 26 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against USPS alleging that the former employer allegedly violated the Family and Medical Leave Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in March, her husband's medical condition required her to miss work, and she was then terminated. The plaintiff holds USPS responsible because the defendant allegedly retaliated against her for requesting leave under the FMLA and terminated her on grounds of failing to be in regular attendance.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for lost future wages in excess of $80,000, punitive damages in excess of $75,000, legal fees in excess of $25,000, pre- and post-judgment interest, all court costs and such other relief as the court may deem just and proper. She is represented by Christi Wallace of Kraemer, Manes and Associates LLC in Pittsburgh.
