Law Note - Employers Must Employ Caution When Firing by Howard A. Levitt


Jacqui Stuart’s employer, Navigata Communications, decided there was no longer room for part-time work and fired her after 24 years of service, even though she was a top sales executive. Prior to that, the company asked Stuart to consider a severance package but it deliberately led her to believe she had a choice and could return to work. The court awarded her 18 months of damages in the amount of

$216,666 plus legal costs.
