HARRISBURG — A former employee is suing Lowe's Home Centers LLC, citing alleged violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and wrongful termination.
Tina Anderson filed a complaint on Oct. 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against Lowe's Home Centers LLC, alleging that the employer terminated her employment for exercising her rights to FMLA.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in 2014, she was terminated from her employment for going on an FMLA-protected leave due to vestibular neuronitis and severe vertigo. The plaintiff holds Lowe's Home Centers LLC responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated her employment despite her claim that her time-off requests were protected under the FMLA.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks reinstatement, damages for lost income and benefits, front pay damages, compensatory damages, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by George R. Barron of George R. Barron, Esq. in Wilkes-Barre.
