NY1 anchors file lawsuit claiming discrimination

A lawsuit has been filed against New York news station NY1 by five female employees of the company. The suit claims that NY1 has made employment decisions that represent systemic age and gender discrimination. An attorney for the women says that he hopes to hold the company accountable for its actions and put a stop to discrimination against women in the media. According to a spokesperson for the company that owns NY1, the claims have no merit.

Furthermore, the spokesperson said that NY1 provides many opportunities for advancement for women over the age of 40. One of the plaintiffs in the case is the first on-air talent that the station hired. The 61-year-old claims that while her air time has gone down, her 50-year-old male colleague was named the star of a new morning show. She also claims that a new studio was created for the show that is better than the one she broadcasts from.

The lawsuit also mentions that the woman was celebrated by the network during her 20th anniversary there. However, it goes on to state that she was barely acknowledged when she reached her 25th year with the network. The plaintiffs are seeking compensation for a variety of emotional and mental damages as well as an injunction to stop what it sees as illegal activity.

Those who are demoted, terminated, or otherwise treated differently at work because of their physical characteristics may be victims of gender discrimination. Companies that violate employment laws may be required to provide compensation to the victims. People who believe that they have been treated unfairly might want to discuss their situation with an attorney.
