Employment Law Case Results
We think results speak louder than words and just a few examples of our results in employment cases, include:
In 2006, Arash Homampour settled a disability discrimination/failure to accommodate case for $2,800,000. Plaintiff worked for Defendant Company for 16 years in various positions. His last position was a Senior Field Engineer and he was making $55,000 per year.
On September 16, 2003, Plaintiff, then 52 years old, sustained a back injury (compression fracture of the spine) at work. He attempted to return to work on June 1, 2004, but was terminated on September 3, 2004. He alleged that Defendant Company failed to reasonably accommodate his disability, failed to engage in the interactive process and unlawfully terminated him violation of public policy.
Defendant denied Plaintiff’s contentions and claimed that Plaintiff had released all of his claims in a workers’ compensation Compromise & Release. Defendant also made an unconditional offer of reinstatement on October 2006 with a position that would have paid Plaintiff the same wages he would have earned had he not been terminated. Defendant also claimed that Plaintiff was not entitled to any future wage loss from the date of their offer. Plaintiff sought damages for back pay, front pay, emotional distress, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
The case settled the day before trial with Defendant paying $2,800,000.
In 2012, Arash Homampour won a jury trial and a judgment over $1.6 million against Farmers Insurance Company when it failed to reasonably accommodate a claims adjuster who had just beat cancer but who also developed a disputed chronic pain syndrome. Farmers offered nothing to settle the case and Arash showed how Farmers violated key disability laws designed to give disabled workers the right to work.
In 2006, Arash Homampour settled a gender discrimination case pre-lawsuit against an investment firm for $1.25 million where defendant employer articulated legitimate non-discriminatory performance based reasons for termination.
In 2011, Arash Homampour settled a reasonable accommodation case against a public entity for $1.25 million where Plaintiff effectively had no future wage loss as she was receiving 100% of her income through disability retirement benefits.
