Solving Discrimination Cases Swiftly, Successfully

Employment lawyer Fred Shahrooz Scampato
The best kind of discrimination cases are those that resolve swiftly and successfully. Here is one such story that resolved today:
 
 
Young lady works for company. Had a medical condition that put her in the hospital five times over the course of the past year. She writes to her employer and seeks a medical leave for a surgery to resolve the ongoing medical condition. Company denies leave stating that she hasn’t worked long enough to eligible for family leave and because it was elective surgery.
 
 
All of a sudden, the young lady notes that her hours are being cut. She writes a letter of complaint to upper management about retaliation and seeks to appeal decision to get time off for the surgery. Her boss finds out about the complaint and tells her that she screwed herself for writing the letter of complaint. The young lady is advised that if she goes forward with the surgery, then she will be considered to have resigned for job abandonment.
 
The young lady retains me last week, right before going in for the surgery. I immediately write a couple of letters to the company, advising them of the situation and of her rights under NJ anti-discrimination law. Today, I receive word that the company has reversed its decision and will authorize the young lady to be out on medical leave. The company also advised that she will have a job upon her return from the medical leave. They also advised that they were going to look into her complaints of retaliation and offered to let her to work at a different physical location near her home.

 
I didn’t make a lot of money on this matter. But I couldn’t be happier right now.
