A popular Korean-owned sushi restaurant was found liable by a San Bernardino jury for allowing the harassment of our client, its only Hispanic waitress, by one of its Korean sushi chefs. After months of complaining of harassment and racial discrimination against, our client was unlawfully terminated in retaliation.
While our client was a part-time waitress who only made minimum wage, the jury awarded her $275,000, including an award of punitive damages. PLBSMH attorneys Todd Harrison and Brennan Kahn acquired this tough fought win despite having to principally rely on witness testimony due to the absence of documents supporting our client's claims.
"This case just goes to show that no matter the size of your employer or the amount of money on your paycheck, justice can be had. This verdict is a victory for all the undervalued minimum wage workers out there," said Todd Harrison. Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin, Mendoza and Harrison is committed to the rights of all workers.
