Our Employment Attorneys Can Fight for Your FMLA Rights


Please view this Bloomberg Article regarding this recent victory.

Attorneys Halstead, Bibb and Behm, who represent Ms. Simon, stated, “Before filing this lawsuit, Sarah Simon implored the school district to simply restore her to her pre-FMLA leave teaching position. Instead, as two courts now have unanimously found, the district ‘parked her in a backwater position’ and refused to consider returning her to her teaching role, and then fired her. At all times, Sarah’s primary goal in pursuing this lawsuit was to confirm that the FMLA’s purpose is to protect an employee’s job when she goes out on a protected leave, especially when injured while performing her duties, as was the case here.

“The courts have fully vindicated Sarah’s legal claims here, and Hawks Quindel was proud to have represented her in achieving that goal.”
