Posted on March 21, 2016

Partner Patrick McNicholas, along with co-counsel Eric A. Panitz of the law firm DesJardins & Panitz LLP, obtained a $1.7 million verdict on behalf of their client, who was sexually harassed and constructively terminated by her employer.

Mr. McNicholas and Mr. Panitz argued that the plaintiff was subjected to offensive sexual comments and inquiries, as well as other types of sexual misconduct during her employment. Consequently, she became affected by depressive disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. The Court awarded $1.7 million to the plaintiff for damages, including unpaid overtime, failure to provide rest breaks, waiting time penalties and prejudgment interest.
