Attorneys Bruner and Vukelic defend school against discrimination charge before NDDOL and EEOC

April 1, 2017

Attorneys Rachel Bruner and Meredith Vukelic successfully defended a public school district client against a Charge of Discrimination filed with the North Dakota Department of Labor and Human Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Charging Party alleged she suffered discrimination based on age, disability, race, and sex and that she had been denied a reasonable accommodation for her disability, in violation of the North Dakota Human Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. She also alleged retaliation. The Department investigated the claim and determined the evidence did not support the Charging Party’s allegations. The EEOC adopted the findings of the North Dakota Department of Labor.

Bruner and Vukelic routinely represent employers in their defense of discrimination, retaliation, and wage claims brought before the Department. They focus their practices on education and employment law, and represent dozens of school districts across the state of North Dakota.
