Judgment in Hostile Work Environment Case
On August 30, 2019, Dethlefs Sparwasser Reich Dickerson, in conjunction with Dobson Hicks, obtained a $125,000 judgment against a regional service and wholesale company. This judgment resulted from allegations that a female employee was subjected to sexual harassment because of her sex, and then retaliated against by her colleagues and superiors because she reported the harassment. The employee also claimed that she was forced to resign because of this retaliation and ongoing hostility in her working environment. The case was scheduled for a jury trial in state court on February 10, 2020.
