Man Sues Employer For Wrongful Termination After Court Decides Disability Falls Within ADA
 
05:46
Anthony Mazzeo, an employee for Color Resolutions International, a color dye company, suffered a back injury which restricted him in being able to do his job in sales. He couldn't lift more than 10 pounds and prepared himself for a surgery to correct his back pain. After informing his employer and requesting time off for the surgery, his boss started the paperwork to fire him and two days before his scheduled surgery, he was terminated from the company. Mazzeo brought his claim to District Court, claiming he was terminated because of his disability and age. He was 46 at the time and his replacement was 23. The District Court dismissed his claims, focusing on the disability claim and held that he wasn't really disabled under the American Disabilities Act. The court ruled he was not substantially limited in one ore more major life activities, says Paul Mollica, employment attorney with Outten and Golden in New York. Mollica explains that the District Court relied on case law developed under the old ADA before Congress amended it in 2010, which was passed in response to a number of Supreme Court and other judicial rulings that severely limited the definition of who was substantially limited in one or more major life activities. The 11th Circuit realized that even though the District Court was relying on pre-ADA law, that the ADA was now quite different. By requiring a more generous and forgiving interpretation, the 11th Circuit revisited the old law and concluded that under the new ADA, a lift restriction that prevented Mazzeo from doing his job did substantially limit him, as it now meant something more generous than the prior law. Mollica thinks this case will turn out to be important for both employees with disabilities and human resource executives in understanding that the law that was developed under the old ADA guidelines recently transformed by Congress. In Mazzeo's case, he will get a trial and a jury will get to decide these questions, which is what Congress intended with the ADA amendment. www.outtengolden.com

Solyndra Employee Files WARN Act Class Action
 
09:54
Employees at Solyndra weren't given 60 days notice about their impending layoffs as required by both federal and state law. Under federal and state legislation called the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act — or WARN Act, employers must give 60 days notice when making layoffs of more than 50 employees. On Aug. 31, Peter Kohlstadt was one of 1,100 Solyndra employees to be let go, effective immediately, with no warning. Two days later, he filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging they failed to give him the 60 days' notice of layoff required by law, and withheld hundreds of hours worth of vacation pay he had accrued over the previous four years. Since Kohlstadt filed the suit in the U.S. District Court of Northern California, Solyndra filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and about 100 other former Solyndra employees in the same predicament have joined the complaint that Kohlstadt brought on behalf of all 1,100 former employees. Kohlstadt is represented in court by Outten & Golden, a New York firm that specializes in unlawful termination and WARN cases and host of LBN's Employment Law Channel. Rene' Roupinian and Jack Raisner with Outten and Golden's WARN Act practice group tells ELC..."in a bankruptcy case like this the employees come ahead of the creditors."

Victims of Sexual Harassment Still Stay Silent With Kathleen Peratis Outten & Golden LLP New York

It doesn’t matter if you are a woman or man, LGBTQA or straight, or an hourly worker or highly-compensated C-suite executive. Every employee at any level in any industry has the right to be free from sexual harassment and discrimination. News headlines and social media posts have confirmed what most of us have known or suspected for years – sex-based discrimination and harassment are rampant, yet victims are reluctant to come forward to report unlawful behavior for fear of losing their jobs, incomes, and careers. With a mix of compassion, sensitivity, and aggressive representation, we help clients pull the curtain back on sexual misconduct in the workplace and obtain compensation for the financial, mental, and sometimes physical injury they’ve suffered.

NLRB Ruling Eases Unionizing Temp Contract Employees; Outten & Golden’s Michael Scimone Explains
 
05:36
The issue of who counts as an employee is more important than ever in an economy increasingly dependent on temporary and contract labor. Recently, the NLRB issued a 3-2 decision in a case involving Browning-Ferris Industries of California that will permit unions to negotiate on behalf of fast food employees and others that rely on contract employees and employees of franchisees. The decision held that Browning-Ferris was a joint employer and was required to negotiate with the Teamsters. The decision changes the law of joint employment. Many businesses have strongly opposed the ruling and have called on Republicans in Congress to reverse the Board’s ruling. Labor lawyer Michael Scimone of Outten & Golden LLP discusses the ruling and its long-term implications in this report. Scimone says that the Board’s ruling is “a big step forward for workers,” especially for non-traditional employees. Scimone says that about 5.7 million workers are in contingent employment, about 4.1% of all employment in the country. Temporary work has nearly doubled from 1990 to 2008. Collective bargaining and unionizing will be much more meaningful for these workers because companies with ultimate control over wages and working conditions will have to bargain. As to the ruling’s effect on non-union businesses, Scimone points out that these entities always have the potential to become union entities. For workers in a non-union enterprise, “the odds of being able to organize a union become much better.” Non-union subcontractors will have to take account of the possibility that union organization is possible. Scimone says that the ruling will have an effect where there is already organizing going on because the joint employer, the prime contractor, can in some circumstances be held liable for unfair labor practices. Interfering with attempts to organize may get a company in trouble. “The process of organizing will be much fairer.” In a related development, President Obama recently signed an executive order requiring paid sick leave for employees of federal contractors. Scimone suggests that this will not have an unfavorable effect on small businesses. Companies that do business with the federal government find a way to make it work, Scimone says. Paid sick leave is a more effective solution than allowing sick people to come to work and infect other employees. Michael J. Scimone is Counsel at Outten & Golden LLP. He represents employees in class and collective actions, focusing primarily on wage and hour litigation. He received his J.D. from the City University of New York School of Law in 2009, where he represented employees in wage and hour cases through CUNY’s Immigrant and Refugee Rights Clinic. Before law school, Mr. Scimone worked as an organizer for UNITE, an international union representing garment, laundry, and industrial workers in North America. www.outtengolden.com The Employment Law Channel is a featured network of Sequence Media Group.

Disabled Employees and Flex Time With Paul Mollica of Outten & Golden, New York, Chicago
 
08:15
The issue with a case in New York City, where the medication a disabled case worker employee was taking medication was not with the fact that it was impairing his job performance, rather that the medication used to control the disability had a side effect of drowsiness, says Paul Mollica, employment lawyer with Outten and Golden in New York. This person's employer maintained a flexible work policy that required employees to be at their desks by 10:15. However, due to the side effects associated with the medication this employee was taking, he was not able to show up until 11:00. When a new manager came in, it was decided that situation needed to end and he was penalized with suspension. Mollica says that a district court judge found initially that this claim couldn't prevail because timely attendance is always an essential function in the workplace. The employee then brought an appeal to the second circuit which held that on certain cases, offering employees flexible hours may be a reasonable accommodation if they allow the employee to perform their job duties. Mollica believes that employers need to weigh the balances and see if imposing a strict schedule can affect the rights of people with disabilities. The employee in this case feels he's entitled to the accommodation because it entitled him to do his job, adds Mollica. Paul Mollica is counsel for Outten and Golden LLP, a law firm focusing on employment law.

Ford Motor Company vs EEOC Paul Mollica Employment Attorney Outten and Golden New York
 
07:41
Employment lawyer Paul Mollica discusses the Ford Motor Company vs EEOC case. An employer charged with discrimination in hiring under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 can toll the continuing accrual of backpay liability under § 706(g) of Title VII by unconditionally offering the claimant the job previously denied, and is not required to offer seniority retroactive to the date of the alleged discrimination. Thus, absent special circumstances, the rejection of an employer's unconditional job offer ends the accrual of potential backpay liability. Pp. 458 U. S. 225-241.

There may be special rules that only apply to you and your colleagues because you work in a regulated industry. Most of your compensation might be based on year-end bonus pay or carry, and some of that compensation might be in the form of restricted stock or options and subject to deferral. You may be asked to sign certain documents — such as an arbitration agreement, confidentiality agreement (non-disclosure agreement or “NDA”) or a promissory note — that are not common in other businesses or industries. All of these unique elements make understanding your business and your work environment important to solving your employment problems and addressing issues concerning your work.
