Woman Settles Case For One And One Half Times Her Salary Against Major New York Food Store

An administrative assistant working at the corporate offices of a prominent New York City food store settled her age discrimination and harassment case on the eve of trial. The terms of the settlement, which were to remain confidential, paid the plaintiff one and one half times her salary. Plaintiff was 66 years of age. Although she had received numerous above satisfactory evaluations and raises, new Management made negative comments about Plaintiff concerning her work, attitude and "failure to take on additional responsibilities". These comments were false and were pre-textual for bias and prejudice towards older workers. 

Plaintiff's manager on numerous occasions was overheard referring to Plaintiff as "too old and she should retire. She was badgered on almost a daily basis to retire. Plaintiff instituted suit in Supreme Court, Kings County under the New York City Human Rights Law, contained in the New York City Administrative Code. Plaintiff was represented by Philip Taubman of Taubman Kimelman & Soroka, LLP. a prominent employment and personal injury firm in New York City. www.discriminationfighter.com
