Plaintiff alleged that two of her supervisors sexually pursued her and made sexually inappropriate comments. These comments occurred on virtually a daily basis. Plaintiff made multiple complaints to upper management, yet, nothing was done to stop the sexual harassment.
Defendants claimed that their comments were made in jest and were not sexually harassing. Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, were retained and established that the comments made by defendant perpetrators were in fact sexually degrading and created a hostile work environment. In addition, the fact that Plaintiff’s complaints to management went unaddressed created a punitive damage risk for defendants.
RESULT: $375,000 settlement on behalf of Plaintiff
