Va. man accuses HP of firing him for requesting FMLA leave

By John Suayan | Dec 7, 2018

HOUSTON – A California-based multinational information technology company has been sued for wrongful termination by a Virginia man, recent Houston federal court records show.

Vincent Pava filed a lawsuit against Hewlett Packard Enterprises on Dec. 5 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas. Pava claims that HPE fired him for attempting to exercise his rights under the Family Medical Leave Act.

According to court filings, Pava suffered “severe anxiety and panic attacks” as a result of a hostile work environment and his physician instructed him to go on medical leave.

The original petition asserts that HPE denied Pava’s request, as well as “sought to dissuade the plaintiff from any benefit that FMLA leave would have when the plaintiff opposed HPE’s denial of his request.”

Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

He is represented by David J. Quan of the Law Office of David J. Quan in Houston.
