Record Breaking Verdicts and Settlements

$155.4 Million Employment Verdict

In December 2021, Carney R. Shegerian and Shegerian & Associates obtained a record-breaking $155,400,000 verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation by the jury on behalf of our client Andrew Rudnicki. This verdict is among the largest of its kind in Los Angeles and California history. After 37 years of devoted and decorated service, Andrew Rudnicki was inexplicably fired within months of his anticipated testimony in a FEHA case (Coates v. Farmers). The Jury agreed and awarded $5.4M in compensatory damages and a staggering punitive damages award of $150M against Farmers Insurance Exchange and Farmers Group Inc.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • An employment law attorney specializes in local and federal employment laws, advising and representing clients in issues like contracts, disputes, and compliance. Serving as advocates for both employers and employees, employment lawyers offer legal guidance, assist in dispute resolution, negotiate contracts, and represent clients in legal proceedings, contributing to a fair and lawful workplace.

  • Employment law regulates the multifaceted employer-employee relationship, covering rights and responsibilities such as wage regulations, discrimination protections, workplace safety, wrongful termination, and worker rights like rest and meal breaks. Employment lawyers, with their expertise in this field, navigate these complexities to ensure compliance and uphold the rights and obligations of both employers and employees in the workplace.

  • While some resolve disputes through negotiation, situations where agreements aren't reached often necessitate hiring an employment lawyer. Individuals may seek legal representation from organizations like the California Civil Rights Department if unable to settle disputes independently. Employment lawyers specialize in handling these complexities, safeguarding claimants' rights and pursuing fair compensation when needed.

  • An employee in California cannot be discriminated against or retaliated against based on the following categories, according to the FEHA:

    • Race (including traits associated with specific races, like hair or body structure)
    • Religion
    • Ancestry
    • Genetic information
    • Sex and gender (including pregnancy)
    • Gender identity and expression
    • Sexual orientation
    • Marital status
    • Reproductive health decisions (such as abortions or birth control)
    • Medical condition (genetic characteristics, long-term illnesses)
    • Disability (mental and physical)
    • Age (for those over 40)
    • Request for medical or family care leave
    • Request for Pregnancy Disability leave
    • Resisting, reporting, or helping another person report discrimination
    • Criminal background (under the Fair Chance Act)
  • Employers need to have a legal, non-discriminatory reason to fire an employee. If an employer fires an employee because of discrimination, unwillingness to break the law, performance of a legal obligation, the practice of a legal right, or reporting of an employer’s crimes, that would be considered wrongful termination.

  • Employment lawyers in California can charge anywhere from $90 to $450 per hour on average. However, they can differ in when they begin to start counting hours. Shegerian & Associates offers free legal evaluation and only charges you if you win your case.

  • Navigating employment law can be challenging due to the discrepancy in resources between individuals and their employers. Finding an employment lawyer willing to take on your case despite these odds is vital. When seeking the right employment law attorney, prioritize those with a track record of representing workers, backed by honest and positive testimonials. Additionally, opt for employment lawyers who demonstrate a client-centric approach, ensuring they prioritize your needs and advocate fiercely on your behalf within the complexities of employment law.
