Zatuchni & Associates represented a former employee of a national crafts store in a whistleblower lawsuit against the company under the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act. The employee brought her lawsuit in New Jersey, claiming that she was subjected to intolerable retaliatory harassment after she blew the whistle on a manager’s unlawful scheme to avoid paying overtime wages. After a week long trial, a jury returned a verdict in the employees favor in the amount of $3.2 million in compensatory and punitive damages. After post-trial motions were filed, the case settled for a confidential amount.
