Los Angeles Associational Disability Discrimination Attorney | Jeffrey Cowan
Six Figure Settlement for Employee Discriminated Against Because of His Kids' Disabilities
A male employee for a publicly traded corporation had three children who suffer from “boy in the bubble” disease and regularly need medical treatment at UCLA. The company transferred him from Los Angeles to Las Vegas after promising to accommodate our client's need to return home every few weeks to visit his family and help take the children to the hospital for medical treatments. Then the company learned how the medical needs of our client's kids were increasing its insurance premiums. Suddenly, our client's supervisor started harassing him and denying him time off to see his children - to the point that he suffered a nervous breakdown.
After Los Angeles and Santa Monica employment trial lawyer Jeffrey Cowan was retained and threatened to sue for associational disability discrimination, a six figure settlement was negotiated within a few weeks.
