CERG Associate Sean Tamura-Sato spoke on a June 28 panel at this year’s National Employment Lawyers Association annual convention in Denver, Colorado.
Sean, along with Adria S. Zeldin and moderator Gary M. Gilbert, focused on how practitioners can maximize compensatory damages awards in federal sector EEO complaints through the careful selection of evidence and witnesses.
When reviewing decisions from the EEOC’s Office of Federal Operations on compensatory damages awards, it often becomes clear which awards were heightened due to the skillful presentation of evidence in support of awards by competent counsel.
The National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) advances employee rights and serves lawyers who advocate for equality and justice in the American workplace. NELA is the country’s largest professional organization that is exclusively comprised of lawyers who represent individual employees in cases involving employment discrimination and other employment-related matters.
