Federal Employment Discrimination

May 22, 2015

Richard represented a client in front of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  Richard’s client was a Federal employee who was a victim of age and national origin discrimination.  The EEOC judge awarded the employee damages for emotional pain and suffering, and also ordered the Government to pay the client’s attorney fees.  Later, the same agency tried to fire the employee.  Richard was able to negotiate a severance package and a cash payment equal to about 3 years of salary.
