Erdman v. Nationwide Insurance Co.1 No. 07-3796 (Sept. 23, 2009)

Articles Discussing Case:

FMLA's administrative complexities create challenges for employers.

Ogletree Deakins • February 01, 2010
The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania recently re-visited a case on remand from the Third Circuit, and allowed an insurance company employee’s claims of FMLA interference and retaliation to go forward. Erdman v. Nationwide Insurance Co., M.D. Pa., No. 1:05-cv-0944, 1/15/10. The case is noteworthy on more than one point: first, the 3d Circuit remanded the case on a finding that the employee’s hours worked at home might be counted toward the 1250 minimum hours needed to be eligible for FMLA leave; second, that evidence of ongoing “antagonism” between the company and the employee might form the basis of FMLA retaliation; and finally, that a request for FMLA leave may be viewed as a “protected activity” under Pennsylvania’s Human Relations Act.
