Men Fighting Back in the Workplace

And men are also filing more FMLA Claims as well.

Attorneys believe this trend is caused by the so-called Father’s Rights Movement.

Regardless of the cause, the monetary impact to employers is significant. One man successfully sued his employer for $11.65 million – he charged he was retaliated against for taking time off under the FMLA to care for his aging parents. Schultz v. Advocate Health, No. 01C-0702 (N.D. Ill. June 5, 2002). The case settled for an undisclosed amount in 2003.

Make sure to establish gender-free retaliation and harassment policies in your workplace. It’s not just women who are suing anymore.
