Confidential v. Confidential
Area of Law: Sexual Harassment/Abuse
State Filed: California
Settlement: Eighty-thousand dollars
Settlement Amount: 80,000
Female Plaintiff came in complaining of sexual harassment by her supervisor. The case was problematic because there were no witnesses and despite the fact that Plaintiff claimed that she repeatedly complained, none of the complaints were in writing. Not one document reflected any complaints of illegal conduct. Despite that fact, after extensive discovery, we were able to resolve the case for $80,000. Plaintiff was also permitted to receive medical treatment through the Worker’s Compensation system. Further, the Plaintiff was guaranteed in writing that her previous employer would not make any negative statements about her to potential employers.
