Ms. AS was a 19 year old employee/administrative assistant for a small company on the south shore. One evening after most everyone had left, Ms. AS was approached by her employer who attempted to embrace her and speak of his romantic intentions. His actions required Ms. S to flee in fear from the building. Ms. S was so traumatized by this assault that she immediately left her employment. She would later seek therapy for the emotional injuries that occurred as a result of this assault. Through the efforts of this office, a Complaint was brought before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and a subsequent lawsuit was filed in the Middlesex Superior Court. These Actions resulted in an award of damages in the amount of two hundred fifty thousand ($250,000.00) dollars for the emotional trauma and its results.
