Former Oregon State University employee says he was fired for taking parental leave

A former Oregon State University employee has filed a lawsuit saying he was fired because he took parental leave.

Joseph McQuillin was assistant director of facilities maintenance and custodial manager in the university’s department of recreational sports when his wife gave birth to premature twins in 2017, Oregon Public Broadcasting reported.

According to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Eugene Wednesday, his wife and twins required extended medical care so McQuillin filed for protected medical leave followed by sick child leave, which OSU approved.

According to the lawsuit, McQuillin communicated about it with his direct supervisor, associate director Bill Callender. In January 2019, McQuillin returned to work. According to the lawsuit, Callender told McQuillin that his medical leave had “left people in the lurch.”

2. His wife gave birth in 2017 and he returned

to work in 2019. I don’t know of any law that holds your job for that long. FMLA is for 12 weeks a year. Even if he took 12 in 2017 and 12 in 2018 then took parental leave I don’t see how that gets him to 2019.
