Success Stories

WylieLaw has extensive experience negotiating, mediating and litigating employment cases that result in valuable settlements for our clients.

  • An IT programmer's job was terminated after she made a complaint of sexual harassment against a salesman (and also the brother-in-law of the CEO). WylieLaw settled the case during the discovery phase of litigation resulting in a sizeable payment to our client.
  • The head of a Human Resources department felt that the new corporate hierarchy would not support her after she made a complaint of sexual harassment against the top salesperson in the company. WylieLaw helped her develop and negotiate an exit strategy that included a significant amount of severance pay and immediate vesting of stock options.
  • After a graphic designer made an allegation of sexual harassment against her boss, the owner of the company, WylieLaw was retained by the company to investigate the allegations. Subsequently, WylieLaw was able to help the company avoid litigation, resolve the complaint and implement an employee handbook in order to limit future corporate liability.
