Problem 1 Family and Medical Leave Act

Darla has been working for Defense Plants, Inc. for over 15 years as a receptionist and customer service person. She wrote to the new CEO of Defense Plants, Inc. asking for leave to take care of her new child. She has adopted a girl, age 8. Unfortunately for her, the new CEO is unwilling to allow her leave without penalizing her.
