In a recent case surrounding an employment agreement dispute in Albany, NY, the Award of the Arbitrator stated,

“Pamela Wickes, a Certified Public Accountant and Certified in Financial Forensics testified on behalf of the Claimants that …, without any increase in Claimants’ compensation. She testified that the damage for Claimants combined was $1,700,000, including interest. Her analysis was extremely persuasive and detailed and she was highly credible in reaching her conclusion.”

The Arbitrator concluded the Respondent (employer) breached its agreement with the two Claimants and damages were awarded based on Wickes’ testimony and economic damages calculations.
