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 will now be all up to a Brooklyn judge to either proceed the lawsuit or not.

According to Nancy Mozzachio, based on the lawsuit she filed on November 2 regarding Schanzer, she claims that the CEO leered regularly at women working in the workplace and made comments that are uncalled for. Aside from calling Nancy Mozzachio ‘babe’, Schanzer also commented about her breast. 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. Moreover, she says that Schanzer has been giving here some groping hugs that are just uncalled for.

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. According to her, the meeting was canceled and then she was then terminated on the coming week.

By a 2015 external investigator probe, Cedar Realty decided to investigate these allegations. 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. The Wall Street Journal has even made mention about one of the employees being asked by Schanzer what color of underwear she is wearing. As per Mozzachio, all the lawsuit charges against Schanzer were just settled in the form of payroll payments to keep them quiet from the investors.

The company has obtained some success because of Nancy Mozzachio and she as well. She has made her way to the top as being the chief operating officer in the year 2014 after she has become the director of leasing and vice president of leasing in the years 2003 and 2004, respectively. 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.

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.
