NYPIRG Hit With Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit
By: Crumiller P.C.
According to the lawsuit, NYPIRG's Executive Director – who has been facing increased scrutiny inside the organization for anonymous allegations of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior – began forcing Kristin Nance, 35, out of her job, as soon as he learned she was pregnant.
The lawsuit describes that Nance was at the top of her game, a dedicated servant to NYPIRG and believer in its mission. She worked there for five years, at low pay, putting in her blood, sweat, and tears. Once she told NYPIRG she was pregnant, everything changed. All of a sudden mysterious "budget cuts," and a "restructuring"
Nance is claiming that NYPIRG violated federal anti-discrimination laws, as well as state and city laws, by firing her under pretext. The case has been scheduled for a preliminary conference in February.
