The New York State Division of Human Rights (“SDHR”) issued a “no probable cause” finding on a claim that a County employee was terminated based on her age. Heather Dechert represented the County against allegations that the employee was denied proper training; issued counseling memos and negative performance evaluations; and, ultimately terminated, due to her age. Based on its investigation, the SDHR determined that there was not sufficient evidence to conclude that the Complainant was subject to any adverse action because of her age. The evidence instead supported the County’s legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for terminating the employee.
