The NYS DHR found probable cause of disability discrimination and had scheduled a public hearing. Does that mean liability has been established and that the only thing the hearing will determine is damages?
Response: No, it does not mean that. It only means that DHR (Division of Human Rights) would now represent you in the public hearing, in making your case of discrimination because they believe you, because you have a legitimate case. You may retain your own Attorney instead to represent you at the public hearing, which is presided by an Administrative Law Judge.
