The ongoing litigation between the 78,000-member, $1.5 billion Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union and a former CEO over alleged discriminatory practices appears to be winding down and to have grown smaller, according to court records.
The case is being heard in the U.S. District Court for New Jersey.
Oskar Mielczarek was the CEO at Polish & Slavic FCU from May 2011 to May 2012 when the credit union fired him, he alleged, because he refused to go along with the credit union's policy of hiring only people of Polish birth or ancestry.
The credit union, through its court filings, has denied all Mielczarek's allegations.
The case got smaller on March 25 when the court ordered that Mielczarek file an amended complaint against the credit union only and dropped the allegations against the credit union's board members. PSFCU is based in New York City and also has branches in Chicago.
