The New York State Division of Human Rights (“SDHR”) issued a “no probable cause” finding on a claim that a school district employee was denied a reasonable accommodation for her disability and that, as a result of her age and disability, she was unfairly counseled and/or disciplined. Based on its investigation, the SDHR determined that the District did engage in the interactive process with the former employee and did not deny any reasonable accommodation the employee requested. The SDHR also determined that the District did not unfairly discipline the former employee due to her age or disability. The investigation did not reveal sufficient evidence to support a conclusion that the Complainant was denied equal terms, conditions and privileges of employment due to her age and/or disability. Heather Dechert represented the District.
