Moody Law Firm offers free consultation for those targeted by CSX FMLA investigations

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, February 8 — The office of Willard J. Moody, Esq. has extended an offer of service to BLET members who may have been unjustly fired for alleged Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations.

According to media reports, CSX pulled dozens of BLET and SMART TD members from service after they took FMLA days over the Christmas and New Years holidays. FMLA protects workers’ jobs and allows for unpaid leave from work for medical or family reasons.

Moody said in an email that about 150 CSX employees were taken out of service and targeted for investigation for the alleged violations. Pending the results of the investigation, those workers could lose their jobs.

In an email to the BLET National Division office, Moody wrote: “If you have members who have been pulled out of service and are being subjected to adverse action by CSX for alleged abuse of FMLA leave, please let them know we are available for free consultation regarding their rights and may want to include them in the action that we are contemplating. There are limitations on how railroads may treat employees who they believe may have misused FMLA leave, and we believe CSX may have overstepped its legal rights in doing what it has done to employees who are currently out of service.”

To contact Moody or Nick Thompson, an attorney with The Moody Law Firm who has experience in FELA and FMLA cases, call (800) 368-1033.
