HOUSTON – A Brazoria County woman alleges she was terminated from her job in retaliation for taking a medical leave.

Marcia Johnson filed a complaint on Jan. 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas against Quanta Services Inc. alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff became a full-time employee of the defendant in 2012 and was promoted to director of talent management systems. The suit states she was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2014 and asked for some accommodations, which the defendant initially granted. The suit states the plaintiff took intermittent FMLA leave in October 2015 and was terminated on March 24, 2016.

The plaintiff holds Quanta Services Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly terminated plaintiff's employment in retaliation for exercising her right to intermittent FMLA leave.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for damages, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants. She is represented by Derrick A. Reed, Marrick Armstrong and Ghazal A. Vahora of Smith Reed & Armstrong PLLC in Pearland.
