Layoffs at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., have led to at least one lawsuit against the hospital, according to a report in The Tennessean.

A former nurse at the hospital has filed a suit claiming her termination during an approved medical leave violated the Family and Medical Leave Act, according to the report. The law firm representing the nurse has indicated more suits will be filed against Vanderbilt for violating the FMLA.

Vanderbilt has plans to lay off up to 1,000 employees by the end of the fiscal year, with 300 jobs cut so far, according to the report.
