Pitre & Associates successfully negotiates a $22,000 settlement in our client’s disability discrimination case.

May 1, 2020

The client contacted the firm in late 2018 after being terminated from his private sector position, on the day of orientation, due to a perceived physical disability. Upon filing an EEOC disability discrimination charge at the Washington, DC EEOC field office, the firm assisted the client through the investigative process, and ultimately filed a  federal civil complaint at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. However, prior to discovery in that matter, the firm was able to negotiate settlement without having to take the client through a lengthy, and potentially costly, court battle. The client was extremely pleased with the outcome of the case.
