The most provocative cases and the largest settlements in employment law are often in the area of sex harassment. Sex harassment is generally characterized as “quid pro quo” or “hostile work environment” cases.
Lou Pechman was part of the defense team in the 2008 sex harassment case against Madison Square Garden and Isaiah Thomas, one of the most highly publicized sex harassment cases in recent years. Some other representative cases Lou has handled include:
Achieved $600,000 settlement for technology company employee subjected to harassment because of his sexual orientation
Obtained dismissal of federal court sex harassment lawsuit on behalf of high-end retail shoe store
Represented university professor against student’s claims of sex harassment
Represented manager at CUNY in federal court sex discrimination case filed by six university employees
Keep in mind that the most salacious sex harassment cases often begin with a demand letter and an offer to engage in settlement discussions before a case escalates to a public lawsuit. At Pechman Law Group, we recognize the value of resolution of these sensitive cases without the need of litigation.
