Employment Discrimination: Physical Disability

The Appellate Division, First Department, issued an important decision today interpreting the provisions of New York State and New York City laws which make it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of the employee's physical disability. The case, Vig v. New York Hairspray Co., involves an actor who was injured while performing in the musical Hairspray. The decision can be found here.

The decision notes New York's liberal pleading standards in employment discrimination cases.
