Nancy Mozzachio Files Lawsuit Against 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. While holding a coffee cup from Dunkin Donuts, he said allegedly that she has double Ds today. In addition, Schanzer was said to have been groping her from time to time at work that is totally unwanted.
By the time that Nancy H. Mozzachio filed her case to the court for pay disparity and sexual harassment, the company has then decided that it be best for them to fire her. 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. According to her, the meeting was canceled and then she was then terminated on the coming week.
Allegations were then investigated by Cedar Realty after a 2015 external investigator probe. Despite the presence of an investigator by the company, Nancy Mozzachio makes mention that if it will be about Schanzer and the sexual harassment allegations made by the female employees of the company, the investigator ignores them. One of the reports of the Wall Street Journal has even gotten some claim from one female employee who has been asked by Schanzer what color her underwear is. 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. She still strives to ensure that female workers are treated the same as male workers in the workplace and will be safe at all cost.
