Attorney Aileen Konanez Discrimination Cases
The following are some examples of the clients Attorney Konanez has helped to resolve cases arising from employment discrimination and sexual harassment.
Employment Discrimination Cases
Our client returned from a maternity leave only to face increasing hostility and scrutiny in her job, ultimately leading to her termination. Attorney Konanez worked with her to draft the appropriate complaint alleging pregnancy and sex discrimination. She then engaged in proactive early settlement negotiations with the employer and was able to obtain a favorable settlement for the client before discovery and litigation.
Another client was over 50 years old and worked for a health center. She was subject to a higher level of scrutiny than other, younger employees, and disciplined for things others did without consequence. Ultimately her employment was terminated. After the client filed with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Aileen worked with her to develop a settlement strategy. She was able to obtain a favorable settlement before filing in Superior Court.
Sexual Harassment and Retaliation
Our client worked for an insurance claims processing company. She was repeatedly subject to off-color comments and sexual innuendo from several male co-workers. Every time she reported an incident, the offender would receive no discipline and she would face negative consequences. After her employment terminated, we filed a suit alleging sexual harassment and retaliation. Attorney Konanez worked with the client to develop her claims and evidence. After filing suit, we were able to obtain a favorable settlement for the client.
Another client worked for a municipality and reported sexual harassment of herself and a colleague. She was terminated shortly thereafter, and we filed a complaint for retaliation. Working with the client to place a value on the claims and negotiating with opposing counsel, Aileen was able to obtain a favorable financial settlement for her.
