The Edison Hotel is Being Sued For Sexual Harassment

The Hotel Edison and two of its managers are being sued by four ex-employees for sexual harassment and age discrimination.

The plaintiffs lost their jobs in 2010 and 2011 after allegedly rejecting advances by higher-ups, and unbecoming behavior.

“I lost my job because a man couldn’t get what he wanted,” stated former desk agent Liridona Kastrat, 24 to the New York Post. The lawsuit filed last week, states former boss John Canavan “frequently leered” at her and made remarks about her “appearance and anatomy” while touching her body.

Two former security guards also say they were replaced with younger guards after turning over video of female manager Malgorzata Sowa making out with another employee, then sneaking away during their shifts.

And another male plaintiff claims he was given a pink slip for spurning Sowa at a holiday party.
Defense lawyers have yet to have commented.
