People Magazine reports that Kelly Lombardo, formerly an employee of Northwell Health, is alleging that her employment was terminated because of her gender. Recently, singer Justin Bieber came to the hospital seeking treatment for a painful soccer injury. The hospital alleges that, during this time, Lombardo improperly accessed Mr. Bieber’s records. Ms. Lombardo strongly denies the allegation.
According to Ms. Lombardo and her attorney, David H. Rosenberg, approximately one month after Mr. Bieber’s hospital visit, Ms. Lombardo was summoned to a meeting. During the meeting, Ms. Lombardo alleges that she was accused of improperly accessing the Bieber file, and that her superiors claimed that she would want to view the files because she is a “young female.”
