Employee who was terminated before expiration of his FMLA leave failed to show violation


An employee whose medical condition rendered him unable to work for substantially longer than the 12-week leave period provided for by the FMLA failed to show any prejudice as a result of his termination. The interesting thing about this case was that his termination occurred prior to the expiration of the leave period Hearst v Progressive Foam Technologies, Inc, ____F.3d____ (8th Cir, June 8, 2011).
