The New York State Division of Human Rights (“SDHR”) issued a “no probable cause” finding on a claim that an employer refused to hire an applicant because of his sex and/or in retaliation for complaints filed by the applicant against his former employer. Marnie Smith represented the employer, which did not hire the applicant because of concerns related to the applicant’s poor performance and/or misconduct while employed by the former employer. Based on its investigation, the SDHR determined that there was not sufficient evidence to conclude that the Complainant was subject to any discrimination or retaliation. The evidence instead supported the Employer’s legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for not hiring the applicant.
This is a high quality firm. They’ve handled a wide variety of matters for us over the years and we have never been disappointed.

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.
