Former Finance Startup Employee Alleges Being Fired For Reporting Sexual Harassment.

The office or workplace is supposed to be a safe environment where employees can go and not have to worry about harassment of any type. Sexual harassment, however, is all too common; in most cases, sexual harassment occurs between a superior and a subordinate leaving the harassed feeling unsure of who or what they can do. Victims of sexual harassment can rely on an experienced sexual harassment personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates to help guide them through this complicated litigation process. Our nationally recognized personal injury attorneys have decades of experience fighting for our Massachusetts clients.

A former employee of the lending startup, Social Finance, has filed a California lawsuit alleging that he was fired for reporting sexual harassment of female coworkers. The lawsuit was filed by Brandon Charles, who only worked at Social Finance as a loan processing office for a few months. But during that time, the lawsuit claims his manager used “explicit sexual innuendo” when speaking, and made “lewd, sexualized gestures” when referring to female employees.

Mr. Charles claims he was fired after reporting the allegedly unlawful behavior, and was told that reporting it to his supervisors was outside of his appropriate duties. A spokesman for the company has said that, after an internal investigation was concluded, they found Mr. Charles’ claims to have no merit.

Two Motorcyclists Hospitalized After Car Accident And Driver Later Dies From His Injuries.

If you are involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle, the expert motorcycle accident attorneys at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm have decades of experience recovering damages for our Massachusetts clients and can help you with the complicated litigation process.

Two people were critically injured Wednesday night near the intersection of Wasatch Boulevard and Little Cottonwood Canyon Road in Sandy, Utah. Reportedly, a Honda Civic turned in front of a motorcycle, onto Wasatch Boulevard and the two collided, each carrying a man and a woman. Both the man, 46 years-old, and his adult woman passenger on the motorcycle, were critically injured and taken to a hospital. The woman who was injured was given medical care at the scene for around 20 to 25 minutes before she was taken to a hospital.

Investigators said drugs and alcohol didn’t appear to be involved. It appears the motorcycle had the right of way, but police are still investigating speeds and other factors involved to determine exactly what happened. The driver of the motorcycle passed away Thursday, while the passenger on the motorcycle has been upgraded to stable condition.

Target Pays Over Two Million Dollars To Woman Who Slipped And Fell In Store.

Generally, corporations have to maintain their stores and exercise a reasonable standard of care and protect their customers, especially during peak business hours and in heavy foot traffic sections. If a store fails to do this and a customer is injured due to their negligence, they will be liable for any and all damages that result. Although a victim may be left with a feeling of confusion as to what to do next in such a case, and filing a personal injury lawsuit against a large corporation might seem daunting, our expert slip and fall lawyers and team of personal injury attorneys here at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm will be able to help guide you through the litigation process.  

An Allegheny County, Pennsylvania jury has awarded $2.1 million to a woman who tore her hamstring after slipping on a wet floor at a Target store. After three-and-a-half days of trial, and one day of deliberation, before Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas Judge Michael Della Vecchia, the jury handed up its award to plaintiff Melissa Horton. The verdict was divided into $1.4 million for past noneconomic damages and $700,000 in future noneconomic damages.

At the time Horton entered the store, a soda bottle reportedly fell from a shelf and spilled onto the main aisle in the store. Target employees eventually began mopping the area with “a wet soapy substance” and placed warning cones around the area. Ms. Horton alleged in court papers that Target employees carelessly mopped the floor outside of the cordoned-off area. Ms. Horton says that she walked cautiously around the spill area, but once outside it, slipped on “the invisible wet floor,” causing her to drop into a split and tear her hamstring.
