Berkleyside coverage of sexual harassment and gender discrimination claims against BUSD


Vinick Hyams LLP and co-counsel Burrell Kagin Law are pursuing a lawsuit on behalf of three women employed as custodians at Berkeley High School. This Berkeleyside article discusses the lawsuit against the district for failing to prevent on-going sexual harassment and gender discrimination. As the article notes, this is the second lawsuit alleging inappropriate and unlawful behavior within the Berkeley High School custodial department.

The article quotes Vinick Hyams Trial Partner Jean Hyams, who stated “It does seem as though there is this small cadre of cronies in that department, who are all male, and have been running the place for quite some time, and they’re protecting each other.”
