CDF Granted Summary Judgement in Arbitration, In Its Entirety, on behalf of Preeminent Regional Hospital

CDF has lassoed the unicorn and scored a major victory on behalf of a preeminent regional hospital.  A former employee filed a demand for arbitration alleging nine causes of action, including claims of wrongful termination in violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act, wrongful termination in violation of public policy, failure to provide meal breaks and rest periods, failure to pay overtime, failure to pay all wages owed at the time of termination, and related labor code violation claims.  After allowing the plaintiff multiple rounds of briefing to oppose summary judgment and after noting that summary judgment is rarely (if ever) granted in arbitration, the JAMS arbitrator GRANTED summary judgment, in its entirety.  Dawn Irizarry led the defense of this matter.  Carolina Schwalbach and Allison Chua handled the day-to-day aspects of this case and were instrumental in securing this favorable outcome for the client.
