State finds probable cause in sexual harassment claims at Newport Swim and Fitness in Jersey City

State finds probable cause in sexual harassment claims at Newport Swim and Fitness in Jersey City

The New Jersey state Division of Civil Rights Thursday issued two Findings of Probable Cause against a Hudson County fitness club, its former executives and a former pool supervisor in connection with complaints filed by two ex-employees that they were sexually harassed on the job, then fired for reporting it.

Named in the two Findings are TFC Partners Inc., doing business as Newport Swim and Fitness on River Drive South in Jersey City, former club executives Jim Delaunay of Chester, N.Y., and Gina Bucci, of Clifton, and former pool and lifeguards supervisor Orlando Pizarro of Jersey City.

Sisters Fiona O'Neill and Evangeline O'Neill, both of Jersey City, worked at Newport Swim and Fitness as lifeguards from July 2006 through 2007. Both were terminated in February 2007 after approaching club management and alleging that Pizarro was sexually harassing them.
