The United States 6th Circuit Court of Appeals has joined a growing number of federal courts holding that employers are liable for co-worker retaliation. The decision, in Hawkins, et al., v.

Q. We granted an employee maternity leave following the birth of her child—12 weeks of leave in accordance with the FMLA. Other than the FMLA, our company has no past practice or policy of granting leave (paid or unpaid) to employees except for their own medical conditions.

Q. We have a problem with the union steward in our plant. He seems to think that his primary responsibility is working for the union, and that his job is secondary.

One of the requirements is to check that the terminated employee has returned all company property, including company manuals, laptop computers, identification badges and similar items.

Our company has a rule that an employee has 15 days to have the treating doctor sign and return a form certifying the medical condition of the family member who is sick. We never received the signed form. The employee says that his doctor sent it. Can we terminate the employee? ...
The days are just about over of public employees speaking out against their employers’ actions and claiming they were simply exercising their First Amendment right to free speech. The Constitution doesn’t provide protection for those acting in an official capacity ...

Q. We have an employee who has filed a workers’ compensation claim. Our attorneys have asked the employee to go to our insurance company’s doctor for an evaluation.
