Zatuchni & Associates Obtains $200K Settlement For Age Discrimination Claim

David Zatuchni

Recently, Zatuchni & Associates negotiated a $200,000 settlement of an employee’s age discrimination and retaliation claims. The employee in question worked for over two decades as a clerk for a Fortune-500 shipping company. He alleged that, once he reached his sixties, his managers began subjecting him to a string of bogus disciplines in order to get him fired.  In particular, he alleged that management issued him a citation, and ultimately terminated him, for failing to provide a doctor’s note excusing his absence from work, when in fact the employee had provided such a note on several occasions.

The case was sent to mediation, where Zatuchni & Associates argued that the disciplines issued to the employee were false, and merely a paper-trail concocted by management to hide its unlawful age discrimination. After a lively round of negotiation, Zatuchni & Associates was pleased to secure its client’s approval for a $200K settlement offer.
