$62k SETTLEMENT FOR HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT against religion

Background: Our client, working in a predominantly non-Muslim environment, faced persistent mockery from coworkers regarding Islamic religious practices and dietary restrictions. Despite complaining to the manager, the behavior continued. The situation escalated when, in response to a news story involving Muslims, several coworkers made highly offensive comments about Muslim people. It was at this point that the client reached out to us.


Outcome: We were able to show that the behavior in the workplace was pervasive, and caused a hostile work environment for our client. We ended up recovering approximately $62,500 for our client.

Result:

$62,500
