Member News — KSL Secures Client Settlement for Workplace Harassment & Retaliation Lawsuit
January 7th, 2019

Kaufman, Semeraro & Leibman, LLP is happy to announce that Partner Mark J. Semeraro and Associate Justin Santagata successfully represented two employees in a hostile work environment, discrimination, and retaliation lawsuit which settled under terms of confidentiality for over $1,500,000.00.  The employer agreed to settle the claims without any admission of liability.

The claim involved allegations that a manager discriminated against the employees due to one employee’s immigration status and due to the other having children out of wedlock.  It was alleged that the employees were verbally abused over a three year period and ultimately retaliated against when they reported the abuse to upper management.

If you or anyone you know has been the victim of a hostile work environment, discrimination, harassment, retaliation or wrongful termination, please contact Mark J. Semeraro at 973-585-6254.
