FH+H Negotiates Hard-Fought Resolution to Race- and Disability-Based Discrimination

In a matter involving an Equal Employment Opportunity failure to provide a reasonable accommodation claim against a component of the Department of Justice, Partner Kevin Byrnes and Senior Associate Samuel Adelmann successfully negotiated the resolution of a race- and disability-based claim involving the denial of telecommuting and other accommodations to a disabled veteran.

The agency initially denied any misconduct and litigated the case aggressively until the eve of a hearing before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Upon submission of initial discovery, the agency agreed to a settlement that also involved payment of attorneys’ fees and emotional distress damages.
