Success in New York

Jeff James succeeded in convincing the New York State Human Rights Commission (“NYSHRC”) that there was no probable cause for finding a failure to accommodate a disability or retaliatory discharge against our client.  The complainant had been having performance problems and only revealed her medical condition when being informed that she was going to be let go if she did not make significant progress.  The client acted to reasonably accommodate the complainant, but when there was no change in performance it followed through with the separation.  After unsuccessfully attempting to negotiate a final resolution, the complainant filed charges against the client and her former manager.  The NYSHRC ultimately dismissed the charges against all parties, finding the client had acted reasonably, and ordered the matter closed.
