SCRANTON — A former employee is suing Syncreon.US Inc., an employer, citing alleged retaliation and violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
Amy M. Stottlemyer, who was employed with the defendant as a quality engineer, filed a complaint on April 24 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania alleging that the employer interfered with plaintiff's right to an FMLA-protected leave.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was terminated from her employment for exercising her right to an FMLA leave that she needed for treatment of serious health issues. The plaintiff holds Syncreon.US responsible because the defendant allegedly retaliated against the plaintiff by terminating her employment for going on leave.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks back pay and benefits, reinstatement, statutory interest, compensatory damages, liquidated damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Jennifer A. Kline of Katherman, Briggs & Greenberg LLP in York.
