New York Woman Brings Sexual Harassment and Retaliation Claim Against the Staten Island Ferry
Jennette Suarez claims that she was subjected to lewd sexually harassing behavior during her employment at Staten Island Ferry. Suarez alleges in her suit recently filed in Federal Court in Brooklyn that ferry employees used high tech cameras to zoom in for closeups “down a women’s blouse or up a woman’s skirt” and that deckhands created a degrading and demeaning workplace for women.
Additionally, Suarez claims that male deckhands would freely view pornography on their phones, refer to woman in “offensive and disrespectful language” and that after Suarez complained about the sexual harassment, she was fired in retaliation for her complaints.
