employment law case study

Case Study: Employee Misappropriates Company Assets

Prior to laying off an employee, our client learned that the employee had misappropriated company assets. The employee, who was pregnant, filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Dept. of Fair Employment & Housing (DFEH), claiming the lay-off was a pretext, and that the employer was discriminating due to her pregnancy.

Evidence of the misappropriation was turned over to the police as part of a criminal investigation. The EEOC claimed that the employer's actions were in retaliation for the original pregnancy discrimination complaint, and sought penalties. We were able to get the EEOC and DFEH to close the complaints without payment of any penalties.
