Commission on Human Rights
May 2009 Commission Rulings on Discrimination Complaints
NICHOLASVILLE – The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights Board of Commissioners at its meeting today ruled to dismiss 20 complaints with findings of no probable cause. The commission dismissed four withdrawals without settlement but with a right to sue, and it dismissed four withdrawals with private settlements. No conciliation agreements came before the commission this month.
The commission held its meeting in Nicholasville at historic Camp Nelson to give people there the opportunity to learn about the commission’s purpose and about their rights to equal opportunity in Kentucky. The commission occasionally holds its board meetings away from Louisville headquarters for this reason and as budget allows.
The Kentucky Commission on Human Rights is the state government agency that enforces the Kentucky Civil Rights Act and federal civil rights laws.
