Attorney Andrew Lieb Offers New CLE for Attorneys: Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Proving Emotional Distress Damages in a Discrimination Case

Discrimination law is top of mind for most attorneys and businesses throughout the country. We all like to discuss the latest news headlines and debate our culture wars to determine who is right and wrong, but in reality, that discussion misses the point. The real question is what is the cost of being wrong. For example, while pecuniary damages (such as back pay and front pay) are known and tangible, have you considered non-pecuniary damages in your case evaluation? In discrimination law, the largest category of damages is emotional distress, which can vary depending on the proof you have and your ability to prove it in court. In this course, Andrew Lieb will teach you how to gather and prove these intangible damages, which will make or break your discrimination case.

Employers Required to Post New Anti-Discrimination Notice of Employee Rights

Federal law requires employers to post a notice created by the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC), which summarizes the federal laws and explains filing procedures. 


The notice was just updated, and it is called the “Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal” poster.


It must be placed conspicuously, in a location that is accessible to all employees, including those with disabilities that limit mobility. To ensure that remote employees receive notice, employers should also post the notice on their website.


Violations have consequences! An employer who fails to comply may be fined up to $612 for each separate offense.

Employer Responsible for 6-Year-Old’s Use of Racial Slurs in Discrimination Case

Did you know that Title VII employment discrimination cases can happen even if the perpetrator is merely the 6-year-old grandson of the owner?


That's the lesson from Chapman v. Oakland Living Center, which is a case against an assisted living facility where the owner’s 6-year-old grandson repeatedly used the n-word against a black employee.


The problem for the employer was - why didn't anyone stop him? The boy’s grandfather either knew or should have known about the conduct and failed to sufficiently respond. Yes, there was a spanking and an unsuccessful attempted to elicit an apology, but that wasn't enough.


The lesson here is don't let hostile, bigoted and offensive remarks occur at the workplace, no matter who is saying them. It's never okay, and failure to stop such remarks will result in a discrimination case. Be warned.
