On September 19, 2011, the Commissioner of the New York State Division of Human Rights adopted an award against Daniel Marrero and two Handy Pantry Franchises in Suffolk County. The Commission awarded Complainant $27,359 in backpay and $15,000 in compensatory damages because she was "unlawfully discriminated against . . . on the basis of sex, race, color and national origin by subjecting her to a hostile work environment." The Commissioner found "Daniel Marrero and other co-workers subjected Complainant to an offensive, sexually charged work environment that was degrading to women." The workplace included "degrading, sexually explicit drawings [which] depicted male genitalia, sexual acts, and vulgar expressions. Respondent Daniel Marrero . . . also spoke openly about his sex life at work, made sexually explicit comments about women in Complainant's presence, and showed pornographic videos to Complainant on his cell phone." The Complainant was represented by Raymond Nardo, Esq.
