Innessa represents employees across the country in both individual and class action lawsuits.  Innessa has litigated cases in both federal and state courts, involving violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour laws, workplace discrimination and harassment claims, retaliation matters, wrongful termination, worker misclassification, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations, breach of contract disputes, and other employment-related violations.  Innessa has served as lead or co-lead counsel in numerous cases filed against major businesses and corporations, and has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of her clients.

 

Prior to joining Faruqi & Faruqi, Innessa handled complex civil litigation at two highly regarded New York City law firms. In one high-profile case, she and her co-counsel effectively represented minority shareholders in a derivative lawsuit against an oil corporation at trial.
