The New York State Division of Human Rights (“SDHR”) issued a “no probable cause” finding on a claim that a County employee was discriminated and retaliated against because he had a disability. Heather Dechert represented the County against allegations that the employee was harassed, treated differently than similarly situated employees, and denied a reasonable accommodation for his disability. The Complainant also claimed that he was retaliated against by being given unwanted or dangerous assignments, being subject to unwarranted disciplinary action and being constructively discharged. Based on its investigation, the SDHR determined that the evidence did not support Complainant’s allegations of harassment, disparate treatment and denial of a reasonable accommodation. The SDHR further found that the record did not support Complainant’s contention that he was constructively discharged.

Vice President, Assistant General Counsel, Mott’s LLP
I have been very pleased with the capabilities and work product of Webster Szanyi attorneys. For example, Jeremy Colby is a former County Attorney who is highly effective in municipal litigation. The firm was recently retained as special counsel for a highly technical lawsuit. In a few months’ time, Webster Szanyi obtained a successful result for the Town. Jeremy’s diligent response and immediate grasp of the issues makes it a pleasure to work with this firm.
