A Pennsylvania Air National Guard reservist has filed a lawsuit accusing his former employer of firing him for taking time off for an injury suffered while he was on active duty.  According to the lawsuit, UPMC Health Benefits Inc. violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-Employment Rights Act when it terminated Thomas Smith after he returned to work following rotator cuff surgery. The lawsuit seeks reinstatement of Smith to his old position, compensatory and punitive damages.
