PHILADELPHIA — A woman claims her former employer violated the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Workers' Compensation acts and wrongfully terminated her employment.
Heather Duffy filed a complaint Oct. 5 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against BravoSolution US Inc., alleging the employer interfered with the plaintiff's rights to FMLA leave.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she was terminated from her employment for asking for time off during a divorce and to take care of her ill mother. The plaintiff holds BravoSolution US responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated the plaintiff's employment based on its claim of the company reorganization.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks reimbursement for any and all pay and benefits, back pay, front pay, salary, pay increases, bonuses, insurance, benefits, reinstatement, liquidated damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Eric B. Meyer and Claire A. Blewitt of Dilworth Paxon LLP in Philadelphia.
