Business Management Daily (03/18/12)
Just because a former employee misses a state agency or U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission deadline to file a complaint doesn’t mean companies can’t or won’t be sued. If the employee’s claim is related to the Family and Medical Leave Act, he or she has up to three years to file a federal lawsuit. For routine violations, employees may wait up to two years before suing, but for a “willful” violation, they have up to three years to file.
