CBN Sued Under FMLA

Lance Shultz was the managing producer of the Christian Broadcasting Network's Nashville studio and his daughter suffers from a vascular disease, which caused her to need several surgeries over the past few months and complications required more.

Mr. Shultz requested leave to attend her initial surgeries, which was granted; When complications arose and when she was diagnosed with acute appendicitis, each time he requested additional leave, all of which was granted.

After all was said and done, when he returned to work, Mr. Shultz was fired by his supervisor, who said that "he needed somebody in the office all the time".

Because he believes this is a violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act, Lance Shultz has filed suit against CBN for back pay, lost benefits, interest and attorney's fees.
