The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York Dismisses Nurse's Employment Discrimination Claims Against North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System and North Shore University Hospital

The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York granted summary judgment in favor of a hospital operator on employment discrimination claims brought by an operating room nurse formerly employed by the defendant. On Jan. 15, 2013, operating room nurse Ann Krachenfels sued North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System and North Shore University Hospital, alleging disability discrimination in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the New York State Human Rights Law, and age discrimination in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The complaint alleged the defendants denied Krachenfels a reasonable accommodation for her discoid dermatitis, a hand condition, and subjected her to a hostile work environment because of her condition and her related accommodation request. The district court noted that Krachenfels only factual basis for asserting she was impaired in a major life activity, as required to qualify as disabled for purposes of the ADA, was her own deposition testimony that her condition caused her difficulty sleeping and pain while taking showers. Even assuming Krachenfels could establish the substantial limitation of a major life activity without medical records, the court held she failed to make such a showing here. Moreover, Krachenfels did not submit any evidence that her discoid dermatitis substantially impaired her ability to work. Accordingly, the district court held the defendants were entitled to summary judgment on that claim. The court separately held Krachenfels' claim for constructive discharge was inadequately alleged. Krachenfels testified she experienced ‘badgering’ from her coworkers that became ‘worse and worse on a daily basis’. The court held that those and other similar allegations were not sufficient to support a finding that her treatment by the defendants was objectively intolerable, as required to support such a claim. The court separately concluded that Krachenfels' allegation, in support of her retaliation claim, that she was unable to secure a requested transfer did not constitute an adverse employment action under Title VII. Under applicable Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals' precedent, a transfer denial is adverse when the sought-for position was materially more advantageous than the employee's current position. In this case, the complaint contained no such support for such a finding. Accordingly, and after finding no merit to her remaining arguments, the defendants' motion for summary judgment with respect to Krachenfels' federal claims was granted in its entirety, and the court declined to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over her state law claims.
