CG&P Secures Dismissal of Employment Discrimination Action

The complainant filed a verified complaint before the New York State Division of Human Rights against CG&P’s client, alleging the use of racial slurs by his manager, as well as differential treatment as to uniforms, time and attendance. CG&P filed an answer and position paper contesting the allegations. The Division of Human Rights found that there was no corroboration that any racial slurs were used, and that there was no support for the claims of differential treatment as to uniforms, time or attendance. The Division of Human Rights concluded that there were legitimate business reasons for the termination of the complainant’s employment, and no probable cause to believe that the company had engaged in any unlawful discriminatory practice. The matter was handled by CG&P partner Dom Gallardo.
