Male Employee’s Gender Discrimination (Disparate Treatment) Claim Sufficiently Pled; Survives Motion to Dismiss

In DeVore v. Neighborhood Hous. Servs. of Jamaica Inc. (NHSJ), No. 15-CV-6218 (PKC), 2017 WL 1034787 (E.D.N.Y. Mar. 16, 2017), the court held that plaintiff sufficiently alleged a claim of gender discrimination.

From the decision:

[T]he Court finds that Plaintiff has sufficiently pled a disparate treatment claim on the basis of gender. Plaintiff alleges that he was denied the same level of pay as managers and program directors, all of whom were female, despite the fact that Plaintiff had the same, or even greater, responsibilities as these directors/managers did, and was performing the same work, if not more, than they were. This allegation is sufficient at this stage to meet Plaintiff’s minimal burden of pleading a prima facie case of disparate treatment on the basis of gender.
