Summary Judgment in Federal Employment Discrimination Case

August 30, 2017

We obtained summary judgment on behalf of a chemical company based in Ohio in an employment lawsuit where the employee claimed his employer violated his rights under the California Family Rights Act (“CFRA”), discriminated him in violation of the Fair Employment Housing Act (FEHA) based on his disability, and failed to reasonably accommodate his disability.  We argued that the plaintiff did not qualify for leave under the CFRA, that plaintiff could not establish his termination was due to his medical leave, that he was not disabled under FEHA, and that the employer had a legitimate basis for his termination.  After obtaining summary judgment, the Court awarded costs to our client.
