Some Information on the Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Faced by Cedar Realty’s CEO
Nancy H. Mozzachio, former Chief Operating Officer of Cedar Realty, filed a case against Bruce Schanzer CEO for pay discrimination and sexual harassment charges. It will now be all up to a Brooklyn judge to either proceed the lawsuit or not.
As per Nancy Mozzachio’s statement of her filed lawsuit on November 2, she says that she has seen and heard Schanzer always making inappropriate comments to women as well as leering them. Schanzer is used to calling Nancy Mozzachio ‘babe’ as well as commenting about her breasts. After bringing on her desk a coffee cup from Dunkin Donuts, she claimed that he made a comment about bringing some double Ds to work. In addition, Schanzer was said to have been groping her from time to time at work that is totally unwanted.
According to Nancy H. Mozzachio, when she files a pay disparity and sexual harassment lawsuit, she was fired by the company as a result. By February 2016, she was terminated when she was found to have gone to the outside counsel of Cedar to discuss what procedures she must take for the sexual harassment lawsuit she is filing. Based on her claims, after her meeting was canceled on the spot, she was then being told by the company that she will be terminated the next week.
Allegations were then investigated by Cedar Realty after a 2015 external investigator probe. Even if these investigations were being done by the company, Nancy Mozzachio says that the investigator always stepped back when they were allegations of sexual harassment to Schanzer by the female employees. The Wall Street Journal has even made mention about one of the employees being asked by Schanzer what color of underwear she is wearing. So that investors will not be taking back their money from the company, these complaints are silenced as per Mozzachio by paying by payroll the complainants.
Nancy Mozzachio has basically become a success in this company. In 2003, she became the director of leasing and then was promoted vice president by 2004, while in the year 2014, she then became the chief operating officer. According to what she is filing, she complains that she is only getting smaller bonuses as well as lower salaries being the chief operating officer compared to the chief financial officer when in fact she must get them in higher amount. Cedar Realty has made it clear that they are not guilty of these charges and after thorough investigation by the board, findings have shown that the allegations are just of no merit.
After considering the case of no merit, Nancy H. Mozzachio is not going to be backing down from it just yet. Until this day, she will fight for what is right and in providing female employees a safer place to work in.
