Craig Mistler appeals the district court’s order granting Worthington Armstrong
Venture’s summary judgment motion on his claims, brought pursuant to the Family and
Medical Leave Act, 29 U.S.C. §§ 2601 to 2654 (2012) (FMLA), the Americans with
Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101 to 12213 (2012), and the Maryland Fair
Employment Practices Act, Md. Code Ann., State Gov’t §§ 20-606 to 20-609 (West
2014) (MFEPA). We have reviewed the record and considered the parties’ arguments
and discern no reversible error. Accordingly, we affirm for the reasons stated by the
district court. See Mistler v. Worthington Armstrong Venture, No. 1:15-cv-03458-JFM
(D. Md. Feb. 6, 2017); see also United States v. Riley, 856 F.3d 326, 328 (4th Cir. 2017)
(recognizing that this court may affirm a district court’s order “on any grounds apparent
from the record” (internal quotation marks omitted)), pet. for cert. filed, No. 17-5559
(Aug. 7, 2017); Yashenko v. Harrah’s N.C. Casino Co., LLC, 446 F.3d 541, 547 (4th Cir.
2006) (“[T]he FMLA does not require an employee to be restored to his prior job after
FMLA leave if he would have been discharged had he not taken leave.”); Adkins v.
Peninsula Reg’l Med. Ctr., 119 A.3d 146, 165 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 2015) (“[U]nder both
[the MFEPA] and federal law, the employee still must identify a reasonable
accommodation that could have been possible.”), aff’d, 137 A.3d 211 (Md. 2016). We
dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately
presented in the materials before this court and argument would not aid the decisional
