  • ADA and FMLA Violations and Wrongful Discharge: Monroe v. Verizon Wireless, et al.

Sommers Schwartz attorney Tad Roumayah filed a wrongful termination action lawsuit on behalf of a former Verizon Wireless solutions specialist. According to the allegations, the plaintiff worked for the defendant for ten years, during which time he regularly received exemplary performance evaluations, bonuses, and merit pay increases. Following a serious head injury, he experienced intense anxiety and depression (a qualified disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act), necessitating repeated and approved leaves of absence pursuant to the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA). After disclosing his medical condition to his supervisor, the plaintiff claims he was admonished to “leave that stuff at home” and “get over it,” issued a baseless code-of-conduct warning for alleged attendance problems, and falsely accused of an unauthorized upgrade on his personal Verizon phone service, though the accusation was never documented nor was the plaintiff disciplined. Two weeks into an approved four-week FMLA leave, the plaintiff was informed he was being terminated, effective immediately, due to the unauthorized upgrade, despite any evidence in support of the alleged wrongdoing. The matter is currently pending in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.
