Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman represented two employees in a hostile work environment

PARSIPPANY — Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman, LLP is happy to announce that they successfully represented two governmental employees in a hostile work environment/discrimination/retaliation lawsuit which settled under terms of confidentiality, for $1,750,000.00.

The claim involved allegations that a manager discriminated against the employees due to one employee’s immigration status and due to the other having children out of wedlock. It was alleged that the employees were verbally abused over a three year period and ultimately retaliated against when they reported the abuse to upper management.

After extensive discovery including evidential hearings and the deposition of 12 past and current employees, the employer agreed to settle without any admission of liability and under the condition of anonymity and confidentiality.

If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a hostile work environment, discrimination, harassment, retaliation or wrongful termination, please contact Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman, LLP.
