Probable Cause Determination in Disability Discrimination Case Against MTA
New York State Division of Human Rights Case No. 1025067: The Law Office of David H. Rosenberg, P.C. (“firm”) achieved a probable cause determination in favor of a former MTA employee who sued Metro-North Railroad (“MTA”) for disability discrimination.
“This case involved an employee who was unable to provide sufficient breath for a drug/alcohol test due to a pre-existing medical condition that rendered him a disabled person within the meaning of the law” said David H. Rosenberg, Esq. of the firm.
Although the MTA argued that the employee failed the drug/alcohol test and should have been fired, the firm successfully counter-argued that the employee should have been given alternative testing options, such as blood or urine tests, and should not have been terminated because of his disability.
Many disability discrimination cases involve the requesting of a reasonable accommodation like this. If you or someone you know is suffering at work, please contact The Law Office of David H. Rosenberg, P.C. Problems at work are no problem for us.
