Employment Expert Witnesses & EEOC Award

Employment discrimination expert witnesses may consult on labor and employment, fair employment practices, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and associated matters.  In the news, an Iowa jury awarded $240M earlier this month to 32 mentally disabled men who formerly worked at Henry’s Turkey Service in Atalissa, Iowa.  Decades of abuse included being forced to work strenuous jobs through injuries, verbal abuse, and unsafe living conditions.

This week the verdict is being reduced from $7.5M to $50K per person because of a federal cap.  Back pay of approximately $50,000 will also be awarded.  Robert Canino, EEOC Regional Director of the Dallas District Office represented the plaintiffs.  Mr. Canino started his legal career in 1986 with the insurance defense and medical malpractice firm of Best, Sharp, Thomas, Glass & Atkinson in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
