$240,000.00 – Disability Discrimination and Violation of the New York Labor Law

Firm represented a manual worker against his former employer seeking liquidated and statutory damages based upon violations that the Defendants committed of Plaintiff’s rights guaranteed to him by: (i) the New York Labor Law’s (“NYLL”) requirement that employers pay wages to their employees who perform manual labor pursuant to the terms of employment not less frequently than on a weekly basis and NYLL § 191(1)(a); (ii) the NYLL’s requirement that employers provide on each payday proper wage statements to their employees containing specific categories of accurate information, NYLL § 195(3); (iii) the anti-disability discrimination provisions of the New York State Human Rights Law, Executive Law § 290 et seq. (“NYSHRL”); (iv) the anti-retaliation provisions of the NYSHRL; and (v) the anti-aiding and abetting provisions of the NYSHRL. The case was filed in New York State Supreme Court and the Defendants made a successful summary judgment motion before that Court. Plaintiff appealed to the Appellate Division and successfully reversed the lower court’s decision. Soon after winning the appeal, the Firm negotiated a settlement of $240,000.00. Michael J. Borrelli, Alexander T. Coleman and Andrew C. Weiss handled the matter for the firm.
