Texas Supreme Court Vindicates Employer That Uniformly Enforced its Leave Policy

Ogletree Deakins • December 14, 2015
On December 4, 2015, the Texas Supreme Court vacated a jury verdict in favor of a former employee who had alleged workers’ compensation retaliation, rendering judgment in favor of the employer and finding that the employee had not presented evidence that his termination had resulted from anything other than the uniform enforcement of a neutral absence control policy. The court found that plaintiff Jorge Melendez had failed to present any evidence to support his allegations that the absence policy of his former employer, Kings Aire, had not been uniformly enforced, that his discharge had not been required by such uniform enforcement, or that Kings Aire’s stated reason for discharging Melendez was false. Accordingly, the evidence was legally insufficient to support the jury’s verdict. Kingsaire, Inc. d/b/a Kings Aire, Inc. v. Melendez, No. 14-006 (December 4, 2015).
