In a recent matter our firm represented an employee who was targeted by his employer and discriminated against on multiple levels. Our client a homosexual, Jewish/African-American was discriminated against by his employer for not only his race and religion but his sexual orientation as well. Our clients manager also a homosexual would constantly make unwelcome sexual advances. When these advances were rejected the manager turned hostile and over a period of time abused our client based on his race and religion. When our client complained to upper level management he was terminated and further discriminated against by the head of the organization. Our firm initiated litigation and obtained a swift and favorable result for the client.
In another recent matter our firm represented a young woman terminated from her company as a result of becoming pregnant. The employer terminated our client the morning after she announced her pregnancy to the company with no justification. During the course of the litigation PN partner Joseph D. Nohavicka clearly established that the client was nothing but a stellar employee receiving constant commendation and rewards for her work as well as substantial bonuses compared to her peers. All of this ended less than 24 hours after she announced her pregnancy. The matter ended in a large settlement figure in favor of our client.
