Joseph Rivera alleges that Hispanic employees assigned to the Auto Crime Division of the Police Department City of New York aka NYPD were not afforded opportunities to be promoted past Detective Third Grade, while other similarly situated Caucasian employees were afforded opportunities to be promoted past Detective Third Grade. Rivera alleges that the last Hispanic employee to be promoted past Detective Third Grade is Bolivar Medina and that occurred sometime in 1997. Rivera alleges that because opportunities are limited, Hispanic employees are leaving Auto Crime.
