Employment Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Oumano, Emily


AC46099 - Demarco v. Charter Oak Temple Restoration Assn., Inc. (“The plaintiff, James Demarco, appeals from the judgment of the trial court rendered in favor of the defendant, Charter Oak Temple Restoration Association, Inc., following the granting of the defendant’s motion to strike the plaintiff’s revised complaint. The revised complaint alleged that the defendant violated General Statutes § 46a-60 (b) (1), a provision of the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act (CFEPA), General Statutes § 46a-51 et seq., by terminating the plaintiff’s employment because of his association with a disabled individual. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the trial court improperly concluded that his allegations failed to state a valid cause of action under CFEPA because, as the court determined, CFEPA does not recognize claims for associational discrimination on the basis of disability. We disagree with the plaintiff and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.”)
