"Know Your FMLA Policy! It's Not Easy!"

The 'Chamber Dispatch' just posted this article (http://chamberdispatch.com/hr/1169/making-the-best-out-of-your-fmla-policy-this-year/) about an FMLA case that will be going to trial. While the suing employee did not notify the employer of planned absences, the leaves were in line with federal statutes. The confounding issue is that the company's FMLA policy was not in line with the statutes. So who is at fault? Want to know what it eve more unusual? The fired employee was the manager in charge of defining and enforcing the company's policy! Goodness gracious!
