Labor & Employment – REDA – Workers’ Compensation – Threatened Claim – Termination – Unsuccessful Training (access required)

Fatta v. M & M Properties Management, Inc. Even though plaintiff was fired shortly after he notified his supervisor that he might be filing a workers’ compensation claim, mere temporal proximity was insufficient to establish that retaliatory motive was a substantial factor in defendant’s decision to terminate plaintiff. In plaintiff’s termination letter, defendant stated that plaintiff’s lack of demonstrated leadership, reflected through his tardiness during training, lack of demonstrated initiative, dealings with challenging customers, phone skills, and inability to embrace defendant’s concepts versus trying to incorporate aspects of full service hotels, was the reason supporting plaintiff’s termination.
