In a landmark case led by Risman & Risman, our client, Jason Jones, successfully secured a jury verdict of $676,000 in the US District Court, Eastern District of New York, before Judge William Kuntz II. The trial revealed numerous instances of racial discrimination and retaliation at the Mayflower International Hotel Group Inc., operating as Howard Johnson Long Island City. Mr. Jones, an African-American employee, experienced severe racial harassment and discriminatory treatment, leading to his wrongful termination after he raised complaints about a hostile work environment. The lawsuit highlighted violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866, and New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws. The verdict is a significant victory in combating workplace discrimination and upholding civil rights.
