Lebau & Neuworth clients have fared well before the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the past few weeks.
In one case, our client was fired for complaining of sexual harassment by a customer of her employer, a major government contractor. After a lengthy EEOC investigation and a favorable determination, we were able to obtain a six-figure settlement for our client. This was not an easy case due to the lack of witnesses, but fortunately our client had documented her case very well and the employer failed to conduct a truly non-biased investigation.
In another case, we obtained a near six-figure settlement in pregnancy discrimination case after our client was terminated shortly after she disclosed she was pregnant. The employer claimed that it had a eliminated her position in a reduction-in-force. We were able to convince the EEOC that the employer’s reason was pretextual. The EEOC found for us, and the offending employer settled.
We also settled a race discrimination case through the EEOC’s mediation process. This case involved a young African-American employee of a major U.S. law firm. She was fired after she complained on several occasions about her co-workers making racist comments concerning recent news stories. Our client obtained a relatively quick settlement and was able to successfully move on with her career.
Of course, each case rests on its own set of specific facts and we can’t promise any certain results or outcomes. But we welcome your inquires; contact Lebau & Neuworth at 888-456-2529 or lebauneuworth.com/contact-us.
