Attorneys O’Neal, Sottile, And Kelleher Successfully Obtain Dismissal For Five Corporate Healthcare Entities

Burns White attorneys Stuart O’Neal, Mark Sottile, and Megan Kelleher successfully obtained dismissal of five (5) corporate healthcare entities in a class action employment discrimination matter in Philadelphia County. The plaintiff, a job applicant with a felony conviction occurring over seven years earlier, alleged that her job application was improperly rejected due to that prior conviction, in violation of both the Philadelphia Fair Practice Ordinance and the Pennsylvania Criminal History Record Information Act. The plaintiff brought this class action lawsuit on behalf of a class of individuals who were wrongfully denied employment by multiple regional healthcare corporations, in whole or in part, based on prior criminal convictions.
