N.J. Supreme Court to Hear Raymour & Flanigan Discrimination Suit
A lawsuit filed by a former employee of furniture retailer Raymour & Flanigan, saying that the company unfairly limited the time allowed to file accusations of discrimination, has drawn support from the New Jersey Bar Association, and the attention of two trade associations that represent employment attorneys.
The New Jersey Supreme Court will hear arguments today in an appeal by former employee Sergio Rodriguez to overturn an appellate ruling that backed a lower court dismissal of his case against Raymours Furniture Co. Inc., the Liverpool, N.Y.-based parent company of the Raymour & Flanigan retail chain.
The Bar Association and the National Employment Lawyers Association, a non-profit organization representing 160 employment attorneys whose clients are generally employees, has filed papers opposing the dismissal of Rodriguez's case. The Academy of New Jersey Management Attorneys, which represents employers, backs the appellate court's dismissal.
