On March 23, 2017, the Court of Appeals affirmed a judgment for over $1.56
million that Schwartz Perry & Heller achieved for our client after
a six week trial in a case involving sexual harassment and retaliation. In Rivera v. UPS, the appellate court rejected the company's arguments
seeking to vacate the Judgment. The Judgment awarded our client her financial
losses and attorney's fees, as well as an award of $300,000 for emotional
distress and another $300,000 for punitive damages.
Schwartz Perry & Heller is proud to have obtained this substantial
result for our client, which demonstrates the harmful impact that sexual
harassment can have on victims. We hope that this decision will put employers
on notice that they must take sexual harassment in the workplace seriously.
