ADH Law settles $400,000 case against the District of Columbia in hostile work environment and retaliation claim.

In August 2018, ADH Member, Les Alderman, settled a lawsuit filed on behalf of an employee of a District of Columbia agency for $400,000.  The plaintiff was subjected to a hostile work environment based on her disability and regularly subjected to insults such as “crip” and “cripple” over the course of her employment.  When the plaintiff complained about the hostile environment, she was terminated.
