Ohio Civil Rights Comm’n v. Nursing Care Mgt.

Date: August 11, 2011

Ohio Supreme Court

Tiffany McFee’s employment was terminated by Nursing Care Management of America, d/b/a Pataskala Oaks, when she presented her employer a physician’s note stating that she was unable to work due to a pregnancy-related medical condition.  Because she had been employed by the company for less than one year (eight months), McFee did not qualify for leave under the company’s leave policy. The Fifth Appellate District found that McFee had presented direct evidence of pregnancy discrimination and upheld the Commission’s decision.

Status:  DECIDED.  Amicus brief filed 09/25/09. The Ohio Supreme Court upheld the Commission’s decision.
