    Discrimination

    Workplace Harassment

    A federal court jury recently awarded $17,500 in damages to a former employee of the Virginia Beach Lifesaving Service after finding the woman was fired for filing a discrimination complaint, the woman’s attorney said. Former lifeguard Robin Lang was able to show that the lifesaving service retaliated against her by firing her after she filed a gender discrimination complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, said attorney Lisa A. Bertini, who represented Lang.

    Every legal matter is different. The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case, and no attorney can guarantee a positive result in any particular case.

    The Charges:

    Retaliation after filing gender discrimination complaint

    The Verdict:

    $17,500 in damages

    Client Testimonial:

    Lisa and her team are outstanding! Lisa is easily accessible, responds quickly to emails or calls and truly cares for her clients. Her extensive knowledge of employment and discrimination law as well as her unwavering commitment to her clients’ best interests are the reasons she achieved the results I wanted. I highly recommend Lisa.
