Summary Judgment Obtained in Employment Matter

June 10, 2022

Orlando Associate Danielle Simpson obtained a Summary Judgment in an employment law matter.  The employee argued the employer violated the Families First Coronavirus Response Act by failing to give him two weeks of job protected leave and terminating his employment after he allegedly informed the employer that he was experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Medical records showed that the employee went to the doctor for an ear infection and marked “no” to everything on the COVID-19 symptom checklist.  Danielle successfully argued that the employee was not entitled to protections under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act because he was not seeking a COVID-19 diagnosis and that summary judgment in favor of the employer was appropriate.
