She has over 17 years of experience helping clients win millions in compensation from employers who subjected them to sexual harassment, hostile work environments, wrongful termination, underpaid wages, and all forms of discrimination.

Joseph & Norinsberg in the Media

We don’t do what we do for recognition. We do it because the right to fair and equitable treatment in the workplace is a basic human right that we are passionate about. However, media outlets often showcase our attorneys, cases, and results. We have been featured on the front page of the New York Law Journal and are regularly invited to provide commentary for national publications such as USA Today, the Boston Globe, and more.

Nation’s Restaurant News featured a case senior partner Bennitta Joseph handled on behalf of a black worker who endured racial slurs and was subjected to racist jokes while working at Del Toro. When she reported the abuse, her manager dismissed it as slang and refused to remedy it. Our client was forced to leave her employment to escape the hostile work environment.

Ms. Joseph said: 
“Too often, employees withstand offensive workplace behavior, especially when seemingly endorsed by senior leaders whose authority shapes the behavior of the rest of the staff.” 

Ms. Joseph also authored a story about the case for the Boston Globe. She stated,
“For justice to prevail, those who fuel a psychologically unsafe work environment must be held accountable with tangible consequences, including total remuneration and creating a permanent record to track these actions.”

Our case against Sapphire Gentleman’s Club was featured on the other side of the country in Las Vegas on KTNV News. Sapphire Gentleman’s Club is a New York employer with branches throughout the country, including Las Vegas. Our clients worked as dancers at the clubs.

Bennitta Joseph elaborated on the nature of the retaliation: 

Dancers were also subjected to retaliation that resulted in lost wages and harassment for not complying with these demands, adding to the physical and verbal abuse suffered while employed at Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club.

According to attorney Jon Norinsberg: 

Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club, its owners, and hosts were all part of a prostitution and kickback scheme to coerce dancers into sexual acts with patrons or face retaliation for not complying with the requests.
