The Exception That Proves the Rule -- Employee Actually Reinstated


Although reinstatement is a remedy provided for in statutes prohibiting discrimination, it is rare that it ever happens. But proving the exception to the rule, Hydie Sumner who earlier won $2.2 million against Merill Lynch in an arbitration of her of sex discrimination claim is going back, After She Sued Merrill, It's Back to the Job, according to the NYT.

Her intent when she goes back:
I've always wanted my job back. I joined Merrill to be a leader. This was a very expensive process for Merrill, which is why it's sad that they chose to do it this way. I could be in a position to shed light on how to create changes where this won't happen in the next 5 to 10 years.
Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall her first few days back?
