Expert Interview with David S. Warner of Dorf & Nelson LLP: Settlement of Employment Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation Claims


Attorneys who prosecute and defend discrimination, harassment, and retaliation claims have traditionally had minimal access to market trend information regarding financial and nonfinancial settlement and severance agreement terms. Indeed, but for the agreements they or their firm colleagues themselves have negotiated, and the few publicly available settlement/severance agreements, most counsel have been flying blind when it comes to knowing the market trends for such agreements. To help solve this problem, in late 2021, Lexis Practical Guidance launched Private Market Data: Employment Discrimination Settlements, a unique data bank of private employment discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation settlement/separation agreement terms.
