MIAMI – A driver alleges that his employer canceled his family's health care insurance while he was on leave.

Lenin Feliz filed a complaint on March 22 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division against United Parcel Service Inc. alleging that the employer violated the Family and Medical Leave Act.
