$130,000.00– Disability Discrimination Case

disabilityFirm represented a woman with severe depression and anxiety against her former employer for unlawful disability discrimination in gross violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (“ADA”), the New York State Human Rights Law (“NYSHRL”) and the New York City Human Rights Law (“NYCHRL”), as well as for unlawful interference with her protected rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”). Despite our client’s qualifications and satisfactory performance throughout her employment with the company, because of her intense workload, she began to experience severe depression and anxiety. Accordingly, our client notified the company of her need to take time off due to her serious health condition and start her FMLA leave. The company, in turn, terminated her employment in violation of the ADA, NYSHRL, and NYCHRL, but it also interfered with her rights to complete her FMLA leave. After engaging in mediation, the Firm negotiated a pre-litigation settlement of $130,00.00. Michael J. Borrelli and Caitlin Duffy handled the matter for the Firm.
