HR Fact Friday: Employment Law Update

The EEOC recently issued its new strategic plan and continued its litigation focus on what it calls “systemic” cases, i.e. cases that address a pattern, practice policy or class where the conduct at issue has a broad impact on an occupation, business or geographic area. Finally, a federal court recently issued a ruling in a case involving an employer sued for alleged Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations when it fired an employee who took leave saying he was sick when in fact the employee was gambling in Atlantic City. The employee tried to claim he was depressed by his gambling losses, and thus his FMLA leave was justified. Did he lose his case? You bet!
