Being fired because a person in a position of power is more comfortable with someone of the other gender is an example of sex discrimination in the workplace.
New York, New York (PRWEB) February 03, 2012
According to a gender discrimination lawsuit (INDEX NO. 150042/2012) filed in Manhattan by a former Late Night With Jimmy Fallon stage manager, Jimmy Fallon fired a number of male employees because he "prefers to take direction from a woman.”
“Gender Discrimination and harassment are prohibited on the basis of a person’s sex,” said David Perecman, a New York civil rights violation lawyer with over 30 years of experience helping individuals who have been discriminated against in the workplace because of their sex.
In his New York workplace gender discrimination lawsuit, Paul Tarascio claims he was fired from his position in early 2010 and replaced by a "totally incompetent woman" who repeatedly asked him how to do the job and failed at her stage managing duties more than once.
When he complained about being replaced by a woman, Tarascio says he was told by David Diomedi, the director of the show, “You know Jimmy. He loves his woman.”
“Being fired because a person in a position of power is more comfortable with someone of the other gender is an example of sex discrimination in the workplace,” said New York civil rights violation lawyer Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s civil rights violation law firms.
Tarascio also claims in the New York gender discrimination lawsuit that he wasn’t the only victim of gender discrimination in the workplace. He says Fallon fired other male employees, including audio technicians and the Prop-Master, and replaced them with women.
Tarascio is suing for punitive damages and lost wages.
In July 2010, Tarascio filed his original gender discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New York Division of Human Rights, according to EOnline (1/26/2012).
