Selected labor and employment matters include cases where our attorneys:
- Represented a group of employees in ERISA litigation who, after their termination from a former employer, went to work for the new employer in the same jobs, location and salary as before. Established at trial, despite the absence of any written severance plan, that clients were entitled to severance under ERISA and that the denial of severance was arbitrary and capricious, as reported in Bennett v. Gill & Duffus Chemicals, Inc., 699 F. Supp. 454 (S.D.N.Y. 1988)
- Represented an American manufacturer in state court through trial in an employment case brought by a former employee; after most of plaintiff’s claims were dismissed during the first day of trial, the matter settled favorably on the second day before cross examination of plaintiff began
- Represented a women’s professional sports association and its members in state court litigation in NY and in the mediation thereafter that resolved the matter
- Represented a female attorney employed by the SEC in arbitration alleging gender discrimination in employment. Received favorable settlement
