    Jennifer M. Schmalz, a Member of the Firm, and Alexander Soric, of Counsel to the Firm, represent the Defendants in employment litigation alleging Labor Law § 740 Whistleblower violations and age discrimination. The New York State Supreme Court, New York County, issued a Decision and Order granting, in its entirety, Defendants’ motion for summary judgment. The Honorable James d’Auguste found that Plaintiff did not meet his burden under Labor Law § 740 and that his unsupported belief that Defendants terminated him due to his age was based on nothing more than speculation, which is insufficient to defeat summary judgment.

This would also extend to non-disclosure agreements that are drafted so broadly as to essentially preclude the worker from working in the same field.
