Georgian parent fired after child birth gets salary back

A parent in Georgia was wrongfully fired from his job for taking time off work to care for his newborn baby and wife, federal officials say.

The employee’s firing violated family and medical leave law, the US Department of Labor said in a news release. As a result, the employer, US Logistics Solutions Inc., was ordered to pay the former employee more than $67,000.

“Employers cannot deprive an employee who is eligible for family and medical leave of their legal rights and force them to make the difficult choice between keeping their job and taking care of themselves or their family,” said the director of district’s wage and hour division, Steven Salazar, in a statement. .
