LOS ANGELES - The Mesriani Law Group has secured a settlement amounting to $75,000 for a female victim of racial and age discrimination in the workplace.

According to the victim, she was hired as Operations Area Manager for a biotechnology tools company. However, during her first three weeks in the job, her responsibilities and tasks frequently changed. Despite the increase in her duties and tasks, she still performed what was expected of her and was even commended by her manager and her subordinates for outstanding work ethics and leadership qualities. Subsequently, she swiftly became the Manufacturing Science Manager, which is clearly far from the post she applied for at the Carlsbad-based company.

As she continued with her job, she experienced harassment and discriminating acts, which resulted in a hostile work environment.

According to her, she received sexual comments from the Senior Manager. On July 28, 2010, the harassment worsened when the manager confronted the victim at the conference room, asked why she did not like him and then closed the door when the victim tried to leave.

She brought the matter to the Human Resources Department, and then to her supervisor, hoping that the issue will be resolved. However, no action was taken.

The victim felt retaliated against when the company informed her that she will be transferred to another site, and her supervisor told her that her position would be assumed by a white female employee younger than her. The incident has caused her depression which eventually drove her to seek legal assistance of expert employment attorneys of Mesriani Law group, who took up the case immediately.

With the competent representation and good litigation skills of Mesriani Law Group employment attorneys, the offending party was forced to settle the claim for $75,000.

This is not the first time that the Mesriani Law Group has delivered justice for an aggrieved employee. For more than 15 years, it has successfully represented thousands of clients in various employment and labor cases before state and federal courts, making it one of the best and most reliable law firms in southern California.

Mesriani Law Group is a full service law firm operating out of Santa Monica, California, with several distinct and independent divisions, each of which specializes in a different branch of the law. Mesriani Law Group currently maintains divisions specializing in Personal Injury Litigation, Social Security Disability (SSD/RSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims, and Employment/Labor Law.
