Steve Sack Discusses Employment Discrimination at the Brooklyn Bar Association LGBTQ Committee's Inagural CLE Seminar
Steven Mitchell Sack, "The Employee's Lawyer," was one of the guest speakers at the Brooklyn Bar Association's LGBTQ Committee's inaugural CLE lecture, which was held on March 29. At the lecture, titled "Nuts & Bolts of Litigating LGBT Employment Discrimination Cases," Mr. Sack joined Ezra Cukor of the New York City Commission on Human Rights and employment law attorney Colleen Meenan on the topic of employment discrimination cases and how they should be handled.
"I want everyone to know whether you are gay, straight, over 40, or if you are pregnant, that every firing is negotiable," Mr. Sack said. "It's an area that lawyers frequently overlook. It's not that difficult to do and the bottom line is that, with effort and skill, you can get more money for your client."
This was reported by The Brooklyn Eagle.
