Judge says former UNH professor was not discriminated against
In a decision filed on July 29, Judge Landya McCafferty ruled that Dr. Roslyn Chavda could not provide significant evidence to her claims that she was subjected to a hostile work environment because she was black and a mother.
UNH said Chavda was fired because of poor student evaluations and a “thin” collection of peer-reviewed research.
After she began working at UNH, Chavda experienced problems related to her pregnancy. These issues required bed rest and made it difficult to teach. Chavda claimed her department head made comments to her about how the department couldn’t complete certain projects because Chavda had experienced those pregnancy complications.
Chavda’s representation, Lawrence Gormley, had no comment on the ruling Thursday.
