Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. — Wrongful Termination Lawsuit
Lashanda Shaw has recently won a lawsuit against the employer based on being wrongfully fired from her position in 2009. A court awarded her $450K in compensatory damages, which was substantially smaller than the $1.5 million that the plaintiff was originally asking for.
The jury came to a determination that Shaw was improperly terminated because of a complaint she made with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission about discrimination in the workplace. The award confers that Shaw was subjected to severe emotional distress. Shaw was the area manager of the plant.
Shaw’s lawyer hopes that the judgment will make Goodyear enforce a zero-tolerance policy, so that other employees do not become victims of discrimination.
