A former Mayo Clinic employee has sued the famed Rochester medical center for discrimination under the ADA and the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

Kathy Jolene Callanan, who used to work as a secretary in the lab medicine and pathology department, had been diagnosed with “major depressive disorder, recurrent, in partial remission” and was granted leave under the FMLA.

She claims the clinic terminated her in retaliation when she returned from leave. She is seeking at least $75,000 in compensatory damages, attorneys’ fees and punitive damages.
