Steven Chizen recently filed a lawsuit in Santa Clara County on behalf of the former Executive Chef at the luxurious Silver Creek Valley Country Club in San Jose, California. The complaint alleges that Silver Creek Valley Country Club required the Executive Chef to repeatedly perform work in violation of his reasonable accommodations. Then, the Country Club fired the Executive Chef for reporting misconduct, including grave instances of sexual harassment occurring within the culinary department. More information can be found here.
Steven routinely advocates for employees with disabilities to secure and maintain reasonable accommodations. He also champions protections for whistleblowers, particularly when an employer fails to take immediate action upon a report of grave misconduct or workplace safety issues.
