Partner Elaine Maldonado and Senior Associate Aurivette Deliz win summary judgment motion in favor of Monsanto Caribe, LLC. Plaintiff filed a complaint before the Puerto Rico Court of First Instance alleging unjustified dismissal, disability and age discrimination against Monsanto Caribe and her temporary agency. On June 2, 2022, the Court of First Instance issued Judgment dismissing with prejudice all claims against defendants. The court determined Plaintiff did not have a right to severance payment under the PR Dismissal Act concluding that she was a temporary employee with no expectation for continuation of employment. Plaintiff’s discharge was nondiscriminatory based on tardiness and leaving work prior to completing her work shifts. Thus, Plaintiff’s discrimination claims were without merit.
