Two Hispanic Retail Salespeople Get Severance

We represented two employees (“Client C” and “Client D”) against a New York retailer (“Company”).

Client C was a store manager that was demoted after internally raising employment concerns, and Client D was a newer hire that experienced the same hostile work environment but did not raise any human resources complaints.

Clients hired us to report to Company management violations of the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act and the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and discrimination in contravention of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, New York State Human Rights Law, and New York City Human Rights Law.

Clients were summarily terminated in retaliation.

We got them reinstated, and less than a month later, Clients received severance, owed commissions, and mutual non-disparagement; Company also agreed to not contest Clients’ claims for unemployment insurance benefits.


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 [email protected], or call 212-971-9773.
