Christman, Kelley & Clarke settles sexual harassment lawsuit brought against well-known commercial cleaning franchisee

Posted by Legal Staff in Employment Law in California, Law Blog for California and Texas07Feb2014

Five women were subjected to horrible “hands on” sexual harassment by the same supervisor over the course of many months.  Christman, Kelley & Clarke fought for these women for over a year of litigation in Santa Barbara Superior Court.  On the eve of trial, the company agreed to a structured settlement for these victims of sexual harassment, allowing them to move-on with their lives.

Christman, Kelley & Clarke, PC has handled a wide variety of employment lawsuits.  We can advise you from the very beginning.  If you are an employer and you were served with a lawsuit, we can help.  We can offer our expert advice on preservation of electronic evidence after the suit is served.  Even before you are sued, we have experience in employment background checks to ensure that you hire the right person who is less likely to sue you in the first place.  There are sometimes very effective defenses to lawsuits.  One very potent defense is the “anti-SLAPP” motion which seeks to throw a case out of court before it even gets off the ground.  We are very knowledgeable in the anti-SLAPP process in both Texas and California.
