Can You Hear Me Now?

We know AT&T wants to “Rethink Possible” but that doesn’t mean the law.

When former AT&T employee Angela Hernandez took a medical leave protected by the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), she had no idea her employer would end up using it to discriminate against her.

In 2012, Angela Hernandez exhausted her maximum leave hours covered by FMLA, a federal law requiring covered employers to provide employees job-protected and unpaid leave for qualified medical reasons. Unbeknownst to her at the time, doing so made her a target for upper management who singled out and terminated employees protected by FMLA guidelines.

After a 21 day trial, a civil justice jury ruled in favor of the Angela on all counts… Hey AT&T, can you hear us now?
