Gender/Race/National Origin Discrimination Claims Continue Against Harlem Hospital Center

In Shojae v. Harlem Hosp. Ctr. et al., 18-392-cv (Summary Order), the court, inter alia, vacated the dismissal of plaintiff’s discrimination claims.

From the Order:

As to Shojae’s timely NYCHRL discrimination claims with respect to certain adverse actions, it appears that Shojae provided at least some admissible evidence that she was treated “less well” based on her gender, race, or national origin. See Mihalik v. Credit Agricole Cheuvreux N. Am., Inc., 715 F.3d 102, 110 (2d Cir. 2013) (quoting Williams v. N.Y.C. Hous. Auth., 872 N.Y.S.2d 27, 39 (1st Dep’t 2009)). In particular, Shojae testified that Khan, while acting as her  supervisor, altered the terms of Shojae’s job, made derogatory comments to her about her gender, identity as a Shia Muslim, and Persian ethnicity, and openly favored employees of Pakistani origin. See App’x 453‐54, 456‐59, 498, 587‐88. We therefore vacate the dismissal of Shojae’s NYCHRL discrimination claims against Khan and the Hospital.
