A New Jersey man said he was fired after refusing to fire a man his boss called a “no-good New York City Jew.”

Greco said after he was hired in May 2011 as a superintendent at the US Custom House in lower Manhattan, his boss, Howard Anastasi, ordered him to fire the Jewish worker, the New York Post reported.

“He says: ‘You got a guy working for you — Chuck Brenner — he’s a no-good New York City Jew,’ ” Greco told the Post. “ ‘You know what that means: He’s no good. You gotta get rid of him.’ ”

Greco did not fire Brenner.

A year later, while Greco was on a leave of absence following an injury, Anastasi fired him and said, according to Greco, “I told you to take care of something, and you didn’t.”

Thomas Greco, 51, has filed a complaint with New York City’s Human Rights Commission and with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, according to the Post.
