our case study
– SUCCESSFUL DEFENSE OF A COSTLY $300,000 LAWSUIT
When a securities firm terminated an employee, the aggrieved employee filed a lawsuit, claiming his bonus on a basis of the breach of contract. Though the firm’s action in the employee’s termination was clear cut and wholly justified, nonetheless the claimant sued our Client for a minimum of $300,000. We successfully defended our Client and won our case.
– DEFENSE AGAINST UNFAIR AND UNJUST LABOR PRACTICES
Our Client found himself surrounded by fellow employees that were consistently younger than him by over ten or more years as he continued to work over ten years for company “R”. There were only one or two management level employees around Client’s age. Company “R” systematically screened older workers out of its workplace, either by declining to hire the, or if already hired, forcing them to resign or terminating them. Our Client was subject to harassment and harsh, unwarranted personal attacks in the workplace. Upon termination, our client was not provided with any non- discriminatory reasons for the discharge.
