464 F.Supp.2d 527 (AAA arbitration award affirmed by EDVA, 2006)
Our client formerly worked for CACI in Darmstadt, Germany. Upon her hire, CACI required her to sign an arbitration agreement, requiring arbitration of any discrimination claims. In 2004, CACI terminated Faraci’s employment after she rejected her supervisor’s sexual advances. Faraci filed an arbitration demand against the company and won. The arbitrator awarded her compensatory damages and attorney’s fees.
CACI appealed the arbitration decision to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The court affirmed the arbitration award.
