Another Summary Judgment Victory for B&F


Rosana Jones v. Aaron’s Inc.

The Plaintiff in this case took FMLA leave for only a few weeks. Consequently, her hours were reduced when she returned to work. The Plaintiff never asked for a reduction in hours, despite the employer’s claim that she did. The magistrate court granted summary judgment for the employer on the FMLA interference and retaliation issue, but the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed this decision, rightly finding that the factual dispute about who initiated the Plaintiff’s reduction in hours was an issue for a jury to decide.
