Employment Discrimination

When a Fortune 300 company needed legal counsel to defend them in an employment discrimination lawsuit, they relied on Hancock Estabrook’s experienced employment law attorneys, who successfully defended the action at every stage.

A former employee charged the company with federal and state age and disability discrimination and retaliation after being fired for performance issues. Before trial, our team obtained a dismissal of the age discrimination claims. After trial, a jury issued a full defense verdict, dismissing all remaining claims and finding no liability on the part of the company. The employee appealed the defense verdict to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the dismissal of all claims was affirmed. Our attorneys obtained a judgment requiring the plaintiff to pay our client’s costs.
