Webster Szanyi LLP recently obtained a “No Probable Cause” finding from the New York State Division of Human Rights (“SDHR”) on a claim of disability discrimination against a local school district. Heather Dechert represented the district against a claim by an employee alleging that she was terminated due to disability discrimination. In October, 2018, the firm received a favorable finding from the SDHR. Based on its investigation, the Division determined that there was not sufficient evidence to conclude that the Complainant was terminated due to her disability and the evidence supported the district’s legitimate non-discriminatory reason for terminating the Complainant. Additionally, there was no evidence that the Complainant was denied any accommodation she requested.
