Wigdor LLP Represents Former Neurological Surgery P.C. Employee In Discrimination And Retaliation Lawsuit.

Wigdor LLP currently represents Ms. Hilda Mayer in an action against her former employer, Neurological Surgery, P.C. (“NSPC”), a prominent Long Island surgery center specializing in brain and spinal surgeries. A complaint was recently filed in federal court alleging that NSPC’s CEO, Dr. Michael Brisman, mocked and ridiculed Ms. Mayer after she disclosed that she was diagnosed with cancer. The complaint alleges that Dr. Brisman publicly denigrated Ms. Mayer for her medical treatment and level of care she was receiving because he believed that it impacted health insurance premiums for NSPC. Ms. Mayer also alleges that Dr. Brisman blamed her – a marketer for the company – when patients opted against surgical procedures. Dr. Brisman allegedly told her, “I don’t force you to sell surgeries, but that’s the job. Just like a car salesman’s job is to sell cars.” As alleged, after Ms. Mayer complained about all these practices, she was fired.
