Category: Employment Discrimination
An employment law case has many important and intricate parts. However, the two most important parts of the case are the plaintiff’s deposition in the pre-trial discovery portion of the case and the plaintiff’s cross-examination at trial. Many clients mistakenly believe that if a jury detests the employers witnesses and doesn’t believe them that alone will win a large verdict. However, this is far from the case.
Why? Because it will set a standard for litigation that companies or government agencies conveniently losing critical evidence is acceptable. This will be a real problem for people bringing employment cases for discrimination, retaliation, whistle-blowing or lost commissions. The Plaintiff, the person bringing the case, generally has the burden of proof. He or she has the obligation to demonstrate to a judge or jury either documentary evidence or witness testimony that he or she has been wronged.
