RECENT RESULTS

$2.1+ MILLION ARBITRATION AWARD, EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION: Natalie Koss won an arbitration award of more than $2.1 million for her client, a sales professional in Federal sector technology sales. The complaint included claims for unpaid commissions and employment discrimination. Natalie Koss won her client the multi-million-dollar award for damages associated with the employer’s violation of the employee’s Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) rights. The award is significant, as it is among the highest amounts awarded in this type of matter.


EEOC HEARING VICTORY, FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT: Natalie Koss secured a victory for her client after five years of litigating a discrimination and retaliation case with a Federal agency that culminated in a seven day EEOC hearing. The case involved a Federal employee with multiple claims of sex discrimination, as well as retaliation for initiating an EEO complaint. The complainant suffered significantly throughout the individual’s employment. Natalie Koss was successful in winning her client’s case, which included a judgment for Backpay, Pre-Judgment Interest, Instatement to an Equivalent Position and Employment Record Expungement. Complainant was also awarded compensatory damages for emotional distress and medical costs. In siding with Natalie Koss and her client, the Judge in this matter delivered additional justice to the complainant by requiring the Agency to consider Disciplinary Actions for the employees who were responsible for the reprehensible discrimination that the complainant experienced.


FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT LAWSUIT: Natalie Koss successfully represented a female employee in an equal pay lawsuit against her Federal agency employer in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The Federal employee earned less than her male counterparts over a significant period of time. Our Firm negotiated a favorable settlement for our client prior to the trial date.


EMPLOYMENT RETALIATION LAWSUIT: Our Firm represented an employee terminated in retaliation for pursuing whistleblower rights relating to a kickback scheme designed by the employer. Through aggressive representation, as well as news media coverage, we advocated for our client and demonstrated the Firm’s resolve. The defendant relented and agreed to a significant financial settlement for our client.


UNPAID SALES COMMISSION LAWSUIT: Natalie Koss represented a high-producing media sales executive in pursuing a six figure unpaid sales commission from a former employer, who had terminated the sales person instead of paying the commission due. Our Firm filed a Federal lawsuit on behalf of our client. After asserting our client’s commission claims, the employer agreed to negotiate a settlement amount instead of defending the claims in court.


EMPLOYMENT & PREGNANCY DISCRIMINATION LAWSUIT: The Firm represented a female employee of a technology company terminated for taking pregnancy and medically necessary leave. After we won a motion to dismiss filed by the defendant, the employer authorized a settlement negotiation. We resolved the case with our client receiving a substantial settlement.


SEVERANCE AGREEMENTS: Our Firm negotiated multiple severance agreements that resulted in larger severance pay and benefits for our clients. In several instances, the Firm identified valid claims of discrimination based on age or gender and successfully negotiated additional severance pay for affected clients. The employers were part of several industries, including software sales, hospitality, technology, health care, trade associations and federal government contracting.
