CHARLESTON — A Butler County, Ohio, man is suing an employer, citing alleged violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act.
William Revis filed a complaint June 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia against Cellco Partnership, doing business as Verizon Wireless, alleging that the employer failed to inform the plaintiff of his rights to an FMLA-protected leave.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that his son suffered from serious health conditions that required him to take time off to care for him, in addition to caring for his own health concerns. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible because it allegedly discouraged him from taking a time off to take care of his son and failed to pay complete wages.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks back wages, reinstatement, front pay, liquidated damages, all legal fees, actual damages, general and compensatory damages, punitive damages, unpaid wages, interest and any other relief this court deems just. He is represented by Hoyt Glazer of Law Office of Hoyt Glazer PLLC in Huntington.
