Employment Law: FMLA-Termination

Where a surgical technician sued her former employer for allegedly interfering with her rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act, summary judgment for the defendant was proper because the plaintiff’s evidence did not undermine or raise a genuine issue of material fact regarding the defendant’s legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for her termination.

Judgment is affirmed.
