Our latest update on recent employment law jury verdicts and settlements after the break.

FL – A federal jury ordered a firefighter union and Pasco County to pay $189,000 in a race and religious discrimination lawsuit brought by two former firefighters.  The suit alleged that a captain made racist and anti-Semitic remarks, and subsequent to the firefighters complaining, the union published a memo calling the complaints frivolous.  

MO – A Missouri jury ordered Lee’s Summit to pay $68,194.61 to a city bailiff.  The plaintiff charged that the city refused to hire him for the position of court security officer based on his age. 

GA – A federal jury has awarded $51,700 to four family members who worked at a Mexican Café.  The lawsuit was brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and alleged that the plaintiffs were sexually harassed by a male cook and terminated when they reported the harassment. 

KY – A Kentucky jury awarded a former women’s basketball coach $388,325 in a gender discrimination and retaliation lawsuit.  The suit alleged that the plaintiff was retaliated against and terminated when she complained that the school had refused to modify her job assignments to accommodate her coaching schedule, although it did accommodate the male coaches. 

PA – A federal jury found that the city of Erie discriminated against a former firefighter in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The suit stemmed from the firefighter’s attempt to commit suicide through smoke inhalation by setting fire to her father’s vacant home. 

CA – A jury awarded $1.16 million to three former transit employees in a retaliation lawsuit.  The suit alleged that the employees were harassed and terminated after testifying before or providing documents to a grand jury.
