Many have had the unfortunate experience of being passed over for a job for someone supposedly less qualified. But does that necessarily mean that discrimination occurred? One executive of a major commercial real estate firm intends to find out.
Suzy Reingold, chief operating officer of Cushman & Wakefield Inc., has filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court claiming the company passed her over for what she calls a “promised promotion” because of gender and age discrimination. Reingold, 66, seeks $20 million in damages.
