Female Executive Assistant of Broadcast Television Network Doubles Severance

We represented an employee (“Client”) against a New York City-headquartered broadcast television network (“Company”).

Client, a woman with over a decade of experience supporting C-level executives as an executive assistant, had been with Company for eight years.  Client was extremely qualified and frequently trained other assistants in the office.  However, Client was legally blind, suffered from borderline personality disorder, and was a victim of domestic violence.

For discriminatory reasons, Client’s supervisor pretextually demoted and ultimately terminated Client, in violation of New York City Human Rights LawAmericans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and other federal, state, and city employment laws.

Within three weeks of retention, we obtained for Client close to double the original severance offer.


We tailor and create unique business and legal strategies to obtain our clients’ objectives and goals. To request a private consultation, please fill out this form, email contact@youngandma.com, or call 212-971-9773.
