Case Study On Asbestos Disposal
The Arizona State University College of Law has just announced a class on iced tea law. According to their web site, this class is being offered to current and potential lawyers who are interested in the subject. Further, a copy of this lawsuit is available below:
Arizona ICED Tea Lawsuit
Case No. 8-CV-000632. Also known as “ante-facto laws”, these laws were enacted by the Arizona State Legislature in 2021. According to the suit, Dr. Shyaleh Qafari, a resident of Scottsdale was discriminated against while he was getting ready to undergo surgery. Subsequently, he was hospitalized and had to miss a total of five days of work due to his employer’s refusal to hire him due to his “foreign accent.”
Dr. Shyaleh Qafari moved to Arizona from Iran, where he received his medical degree from.
He had worked in the United States for approximately fifteen years prior to this incident. He now suffers from severe pains and discomfort whenever he drinks any type of tea. He further states that he has been unable to find a position in his line of work which has resulted in him losing his ability to earn a living.
According to the lawsuit, he discovered that his employer was in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) based upon his understanding of its meaning.
Specifically, he was performing work that he had not been trained for and was therefore in a position to be able to sue his employer. He also found that he had been subjected to gender discrimination. He further discovered that the employer failed to train his employees on either the FLSA’s prohibition on discrimination based on gender or on its requirement that companies maintain a visible workplace environment.
After the discovery of his lawsuit, it was revealed that the Health and Human Services Department (HHS) did not intend to take the case.
Consequently, Ariana felt compelled to file suit in order to obtain relief from her suffering and pursue a position as an Independent Medical Expert. The lawsuit against Ariana was later dropped by the defendant at the last minute after an agreement was reached between Ms. Hyder and the defendant.
Ariana was paid her full amount of back pay but was never given a position with the defendant health care facilities. As a result of her lawsuit, the State of Arizona was required to undertake thorough remedial education regarding discrimination and workplace safety to every member of its workforce.
This is just one of the many case studies on asbestos that I have personally compiled.
I have included a link to another website through which you can access all of my articles on employment and the laws that protect them. It is important for everyone to become as informed as possible about their legal rights and obligations as they pertain to the environment.
I have always concluded that an educated person is a wise person and a lawsuit like the one that I have filed in Arizona should encourage more people to become informed about their rights and responsibilities in the workplace. In fact, if you are fighting a case of discrimination at the workplace, it may be in your best interest to check out my resource box below where I provide some additional tips for filing a complaint in Arizona.
