Third Circuit Sets Standard for Return to Work Under the Family and Medical Leave Act
The Third Circuit found sufficient evidence from which a reasonable jury could conclude that Budhun suffered an adverse employment action. On August 27, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued an opinion in Budhun v. Reading Hospital and Medical Center reversing the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, which granted summary judgment in favor of defendant Reading Hospital and Medical Center ("Reading Hospital") on its former employee's interference and retaliation claims under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). In doing so, the Third Circuit set the standard an employer is required to meet with respect to an employee's request to return to work following an FMLA-protected leave of absence. Plaintiff Vanessa Budhun ("Budhun") was hired by Reading Hospital as a credentialing assistant, a position that required her to be typing approximately 60 percent of the time. The issue in the case arose when Budhun broke a bone in her hand, thus restricting the full use of her hands and fingers for typing.
