Executive in Pittsfield, Berkshire County Suffering from Retaliation.
In 2017, Attorney Steffans represented a not-for-profit executive, claiming that he had suffered from unlawful retaliation. This employee had complained to his supervisor that his co-workers, who happened to suffer from certain disabilities, were being harassed. The employer ignored these complaints, and eventually terminated the client as part of a supposed reduction in force.
The employer initially refused to settle. After a short round of discovery, they agreed to mediate, and settled for a sizable amount that they insisted be kept confidential. The case involved claims arising under the Massachusetts Fair Employment Act/Chapter 151B, the Massachusetts version of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
