$120,000.00 – Race and Gender Discrimination Case

EqualityFirm represented an African-American female against her former employer for violations of: the equal pay act provisions found in Section 206 of the Fair Labor Standards Act and Section 194 of the New York Labor Law and retaliation under those statutes for requesting equal pay for equal work; as well as gender discrimination, race discrimination, and retaliation, collectively in violation of Section 1981 of Title 42 of the United States Code, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, the New York State Human Rights Law, and the New York City Human Rights Law. Despite our client’s qualifications and satisfactory performance, the employer refused to pay her equally in comparison to her similarly situated male colleagues and treated her disparately on the basis of her gender and race. After engaging in mediation, the Firm negotiated a pre-litigation settlement of $120,00.00. Michael J. Borrelli and Alexander T. Coleman handled the matter for the Firm.
