Tuckner, Sipser Wins Sexual Harassment & Wage Theft Trial Against Subway Franchise

The Women's Rights in the Workplace Lawyers at Tuckner, Sipser won a jury trial on February 9, 2015 under the NYC Human Rights Law on behalf of Aleka Albert, who was fired, along with her mother, from her minimum wage job when she was 17 years old after she complained of sexual harassment and abuse at the hands of her supervisor (read the state court complaint).

Jack Tuckner, William Sipser and Gat Carmi persuaded the 6 jurors in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn that Aleka Albert was sexually harassed by her supervisor, Isa Khalid, who commented on Aleka's breasts from her first day of training, and he continued hitting on her and sexualizing her for the several weeks she lasted working as a "Sandwich Artist" for two Subway fast food restaurants in Brooklyn, NY, until she was fired in retaliation for filing a sexual harassment complaint, and her mother was fired soon after.
