Elsewhere in the Courts: Employment

Employment. It was permissible for a company to fire an employee who was away from work under the Family Medical Leave Act because the company discovered that the employee had stolen company funds and tried to erase computer data to cover his crimes. Because the information discovered would have justified his termination in any case, the company could legally fire the employee during his leave. (Daugherty v. Wabash Center, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, No. 08-3104, 2009)
