Johnson v. Reliable Mail Service, Inc.

Case No. 99 Civ. 5877 (S.D.N.Y., 2002)

Reliable Mail Service, Inc. hired our client to work in the mail room at a bank. Our client’s new supervisor told her he was uncomfortable working with women and that a woman could not do the mail room job. Nine days later, the supervisor fired our client.

We won a jury trial and obtained a $300,000 jury verdict on behalf of a former employee who had been with the company for little more than one week and earned about $300 before she was fired. The Judge also awarded attorney’s fees.
