Meniere’s Disease and paid Leave from work

Do your managers know the FMLA ‘contact’ rule?

Kathleen Hofferica, a registered nurse, was granted intermittent FMLA leave for an inner ear disorder known as Meniere’s disease.

Hofferica then took extended leave to get treatment for the disorder. She said she regularly provided her supervisor with updates on her condition, but her manager often failed to return her calls.

Just before she was scheduled to return, Hofferica submitted a certification saying she could return to work but needed a one-week extension.

The manager never called her back. Instead, she received a letter saying she’d been fired for exceeding the agreed-to amount of FMLA leave.

Hofferica filed suit, claiming the hospital retaliated against her for taking leave.

The court agreed.
