Nancy Mozzachio Files Lawsuit Against Cedar Realty’s CEO
Former Cedar Realty Chief Operating Officer Nancy H. Mozzachio filed a pay discrimination and a sexual harassment lawsuit against the company’s CEO Bruce Schanzer. It is just waiting for a Brooklyn judge to be deciding if the lawsuit has more merit to proceed.
Based on the lawsuit Nancy Mozzachio filed on November 2 to CEO Schanzer, she says that she finds Schanzer always leering at women as well as making comments that are not appropriate to them while in the workplace. Aside from calling Nancy Mozzachio ‘babe’, Schanzer also commented about her breast. While holding a coffee cup from Dunkin Donuts, he said allegedly that she has double Ds today. Furthermore, Schanzer is also accused of giving groping hugs that are unwanted to the one filing the case.
According to Nancy H. Mozzachio, when she files a pay disparity and sexual harassment lawsuit, she was fired by the company as a result. Come February 2016 when she was done getting some outside help for the sexual harassment case she was filing against the Cedar’s CEO, she was then terminated for her job. 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. However, according to Nancy Mozzachio, the investigator never probed on the allegations made by the female employees who were said to be harassed sexually by Schanzer. 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. In order for the investors not to know about this matter, the company has decided to pay the people who have filed some complaints against Schanzer about their being sexually harassed.
Nancy Mozzachio has found some success in the company. While she started off in the year 2003 as the director of leasing and in the year 2004 as the vice president of leasing, she then worked her way up until the year 2014 where she became the chief operating officer. In terms of her complaints, the company is giving her only a smaller bonus and a lower salary as chief operating officer in comparison to their chief financial officer that should not be the case as she must be the one receiving a 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.
Nancy H. Mozzachio is still coming back for more after this denial. 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.
