By order of the NYS Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department of New York State, entered January 19, 2021, the Court affirmed the order of Justice Heitler that denied defendant MetroNorth Railroad’s summary judgment motion against a Black woman managerial employee accident investigator, affirming that she may maintain her case of disability discrimination as well as a hostile work environment under the NYS and NYC Human Rights Laws.

In support of these claims, she submitted evidence that she was denied training opportunities given to her colleagues in her new department assignment, was left out of meetings and was reprimanded for failing to use the company car, despite being in the process of seeking a reasonable accommodation to not have to do so.

Previously, she had always been evaluated as a positive managerial employee at the railroad for ten years. Also affirmed was the plaintiff’s retaliation claim triggered by the temporal proximity between the plaintiff’s EEOC complaint and the incident leading up to her termination. The record established that she suffered from a statutorily defined disability - one that permitted her FMLA approval and that was found by MetroNorth’s medical review officer to meet the criteria for a request for reasonable accommodation.

Her recognized disability, as well as her gender and race, was purported to cause the behavior for which the plaintiff was first reprimanded and then terminated. As for the plaintiff’s claims against the individual defendants, the Court held these claims to be reinstated because the evidence was proffered that each supervisor

“had the ability to do more than carry out personnel decisions made by others, and they participated in the conduct complained of."
