CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey health care company has been sued by federal prosecutors after they say a Delaware woman lost her job while deployed with the National Guard.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office filed the civil complaint in Camden Thursday. They allege that Healthcare Commons Inc., of Carneys Point, violated the Uniformed Services Employment and Re-employment Rights Act.

A message left for the CEO of the company wasn’t immediately returned

Prosecutors say that 32-year-old Megan Toliver, of New Castle, Delaware, did not get her job back after returning from a deployment in May 2014. She joined the U.S. Army National Guard in September 2004 and had served as a sergeant and mental health specialist.

She was employed as a mental health screener before leaving for the deployment.

The suit seeks back pay plus damages.
