Result: Confidential settlement was obtained on behalf of a single female harassed in the work place by her immediate supervisor. As a result, our client was able to recover financially and emotionally from the torment caused by sex-based mistreatment and the constructive termination of her job.
Nature of case: A single female employee was subjected to constant sexual harassment, intimidation and advances by her immediate supervisor. She complained in confidence to human resources. Against her express instructions, and in violation of their promise, human resources reported the charge to her supervisor, who in turn aggressively confronted the innocent young employee. The defendant’s treatment of its employee was so egregious and unfair, she left work, the city, the state and returned home to her father. Defendant settled only after hotly contesting liability and damages. Subsequent to lengthy written discovery, depositions, motions and three (3) unsuccessful mediations, we pursued a motion for summary judgment to preclude defendant’s affirmative defenses and establish defendant’s liability. Although the court denied the motion, the court concluded and expressly stated in its order that: “[Plaintiff] suffered a hostile work environment at the hands of [plaintiff’s supervisor]…a fact which cannot be exorcized from the legal calculus.” The court’s finding motivated defendant to settle.
