In the matter of Barbara Paxton v. Flour Industrial Services (Flour), the ALJ ruled in favor of Ms. Paxton, an employee of Flour. Vincent Imbesi, a partner of the law firm Imbesi Christensen & Michael, represented Ms. Paxton.
Ms. Paxton was terminated for allegedly violating Flour's prohibition against insubordination. Ms. Paxton contends the termination was in retaliation for her numerous complaints made to Flour's management regarding its continuous violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 [ADA], as well as various Federal and State employment laws.
The Judge determined that Ms. Paxton's conduct "did not constitute misconduct under the Unemployment Insurance Law. Accordingly, it is concluded that the claimant's employment ended under non-disqualifying circumstances."
According to the ruling, Ms. Paxton will continue to receive her unemployment benefits. For questions regarding this press release, please contact attorney Vincent Imbesi at 212-736-5599 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
