A recent court decision in Kings County called Della Pietra v. Poly Prep Country Day School has expanded who can bring a cause of action under whistleblower provisions of the New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law. While the case is significant, and potentially persuasive, it is not a binding precedent. The facts of the case are interesting. Della Pietra was working at Brooklyn’s Poly Prep Country Day School when an administrator, employees, students and alumni took a trip to Cuba, apparently for the stated purpose of “a learning experience.” Indeed. Pietra became privy to what really occurred in Cuba: underage drinking, smoking, and participation in prostitution. When she went to the Board of Trustees and reported what she knew, she was allegedly harassed, defamed and ultimately fired.
