LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / June 8, 2021 / Today, JML Law announced that they won a massive arbitration case for their client Eric Engleman (Eric Engleman vs. Greystar Management Services, LP, and Greystar Real Estate Partners, LLC Case No. 01-19-0002-5313), who was wrongfully terminated by his employer, Greystar Management Services, LP. The final award granted to Mr. Engleman totaled more than $819,000 and included more than half a million dollars in damages.
'Our firm was proud to bring justice to a well-deserving client after years of hard-fought litigation in a forum that is many times stacked against the employee,' said Cathryn Fund, the lead attorney in this case for JML Law. Ms. Fund was supported by attorney Eden Kalderon throughout the litigation and during the hearing.
Mr. Engleman worked as a Community Property Manager for Greystar Management Services, LP, an international property management company. After Mr. Engleman returned from a disability-related finite leave of absence, he submitted complaints of disability discrimination and within a few short months his employer had concocted a pretextual reason for his termination. As a result of his termination, Mr. Engleman was forced to move from California to Oregon in order to support his family. JML Law argued that Mr. Engleman was retaliated against for submitting a complaint to his employer for disability discrimination, as supported by the fact that Greystar was unable to provide a legitimate business reason for the termination decision.
The arbitration was held December 1-2, 2020, before arbitrator Dana Welch with the American Arbitration Association. The final award included $532,002.49 for damages, $279,827.00 for attorneys' fees, and $7,183.91 for court costs, totaling $819,013.40.
