Defense of company faced with discrimination charges
Hinckley Allen successfully defended a large construction company against several charges of discrimination filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In each charge, the complainants sought significant damages for alleged acts of discrimination, including failure to hire, hostile environment, and unlawful termination. The company argued that it had legitimate business reasons for each of the employment decisions at issue. The firm successfully defended the company against each charge, which resulted in lack of probable cause findings in each case.
