HARRISBURG — A former employee of Cam Superline is suing the company after his supervisor allegedly told him not to return to work following hernia surgery.
Roger L. Bennett filed a lawsuit on March 7 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Cam Superline Inc., citing violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
According to the complaint, Bennett was employed by the defendant in May 2002, working in the service parts department until July 28, 2014. Prior to his last day, the plaintiff claims he informed the owner that he needed to take three weeks’ leave in order to have a surgical procedure related to a hernia. The defendant allegedly did not properly classify the leave pursuant to the FMLA, and the plaintiff avers that when he called his supervisor back to confirm his return on Aug. 15, 2014, she told him not to bother coming back.
Bennett seeks compensation for all lost pay and benefits, interest, punitive damages, costs of suit, legal fees, and a trial by jury. He is represented by Shawn P. McLaughlin of Trinity Law in York, PA.
