This may be tough to accept, but sometimes when an employee sues, you just have to be patient. It’s especially difficult if you know that the employee isn’t telling the truth.
The judge hearing the case will probably see through bogus claims.
Recent case: Sandra Rojas sued the Catholic church where she had worked, alleging sexual misconduct by her supervisor. The problem was that she couldn’t seem to keep her story straight. As the case progressed, her testimony changed, seemingly to fit her attorney’s theory of the case.
The judge finally had enough and dismissed the case based on her changing testimony. (Rojas v. Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester, et al., No. 10-4132, 2nd Cir., 2011)
Final note: Never ignore a lawsuit, even one you believe is frivolous. Let a judge make that determination.
