Work-family balance


 

More workers file family-leave lawsuits


Lawsuits filed under the statute jumped to 877 in 2013 from 291 a year earlier, according to the most-recent figures from the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. The number of family-leave cases was dwarfed by the more than 15,000 suits filed last year accusing companies of violating laws that protect against race, sex or disability discrimination. But the FMLA was the only one among those laws to generate a sharp increase in claims.
