This week, the Public Justice Center’s Workplace Justice Project and law firm Murphy Anderson were honored with an Outstanding Achievement Award by the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs. Presented at the Wiley A. Branton Awards Luncheon, the award recognizes the work of the PJC and Murphy Anderson in partnership with the Washington Lawyers’ Committee in settling a case alleging unpaid wages and employment discrimination against a construction company. Approximately 250 workers are eligible for payments under the terms of the settlement, which totals approximately $1,050,000 for the workers. The employer also agreed to make changes to certain employment practices.
Congratulations on the awardto all the PJC and Murphy Anderson attorneys who worked on the case, including Monisha Cherayil and Sally Dworak-Fisher (Public Justice Center) and Mark Hanna, Roseann R. Romano, and Adam Breihan (Murphy Anderson); and thank you to our co-counsel at the Washington Lawyers’ Committee, Danny Katz and Joanna Wasik.
