SCRANTON — An employee is suing a York hospital, alleging violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act and wrongful termination.
Christine M. Buckley filed a lawsuit Jan. 25 in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania against York Hospital, doing business as Wellspan York Hospital, alleging the hospital called the plaintiff at home in an attempt to harass her.
According to the complaint, Buckley, a registered nurse, suffered monetary damages from being terminated from her employment for exercising her rights to FMLA. The plaintiff alleges Wellspan York interfered with her FMLA leave by terminating her employment in February 2016, despite having sufficient medical records to support her claim of having medical conditions.
Buckley seeks trial by jury, damages, back wages and benefits, compensatory damages, unpaid wages, benefits and wage supplements, statutory interest, court costs, liquidated damages, and all further relief the court grants. She is represented by attorney Jeremy Donham of Donham Law in Dellslow, West Virginia.
