This course will alert you to the varying procedural hurdles to sue different governmental units for discrimination in employment, education, and real estate. There are varying rules dependent on whether your target is a village, town, city, school, library, county, state, or the federal government when it comes to leveraging New York State’s anti-discrimination law, the New York State Human Rights Law. While these hurdles do not apply to federal laws, such as Title VI, Title VII, Title IX, Fair Housing Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, federal law has its limits where state anti-discrimination laws are a must to advance your claims and recover full damages. Learn these limits, how to leverage state laws, and how to avoid dismissal from failing to timely file a notice of claim and proceed thereunder prior to filing your complaint in court.
