NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A police recruit has filed an employment discrimination complaint against the city, the second in three years filed against police trainers.
Shayna Kendall, 25, who is in her sixth month of training at the city academy and is scheduled to graduate in three weeks, in January filed complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the state Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities, citing violations under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, according to records in the city clerk's office.
