In challenging his termination of employment, petitioner introduced his complaint to the New York State Division of Human Rights with an allegation that his employers discriminated against him based on his age. In this Court, his argument is captioned as gender-based discrimination. Nevertheless, his complaint throughout this proceeding has specified only that he was terminated for jury service. The alleged violation of an employee's right to be absent from work for jury duty (Judiciary Law § 519) does not give rise to a private right of action (Gomariz v Foote, Cone & Belding Communications, 228 AD2d 316 ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
