Representative Matters

Represented National Retailer in Putative Class Action
Represented a national retailer in a putative class action asserted on behalf of hourly workers in the retailer’s New York stores and obtained on summary judgment a complete dismissal of the action. We successfully narrowed discovery to a single issue of first impression in New York—whether deli department workers inside a large retail store are “restaurant” workers potentially eligible for additional wages under New York wage law. The outcome could have impacted the retailer’s New York stores significantly and potentially affected other retailers.
Represented Medical Center on Multiple Claims by Former Volunteer
The New Jersey Appellate Division upheld a decision granting summary judgment in favor of a medical center on multiple claims brought by a former teenage volunteer who alleged that the medical center was liable for damages she claims to have suffered because she had a consensual sexual relationship with a hospital employee. This decision is a win for employers throughout NJ in that it recognizes reasonable limitations on an employer’s liability for employee conduct that is outside the scope of employment and contrary to the employer’s business interests.
Represented Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc. In Summary Judgment
We won summary judgment for our client in a matter concerning an employee’s gender discrimination claim (Deborah Hansen v. Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, Inc.). Judge Jeffrey Meyer ruled from the bench in favor of Jones Lang LaSalle after hearing oral argument on Deborah Hansen’s claims.
