Healthcare Employee Claims Sexual Harassment and Retaliation in the Workplace

A health information technician at a local hospital recovered $25,000 in compensatory damages as a result of sexual harassment and retaliation in the workplace. In this case, the client was repeatedly harassed by a coworker’s abusive and offensive comments and behavior, thus creating a hostile work environment. The client brought the issue to the human resources department, which did nothing about it. Rather than investigating the claim, the company simply swept the situation under the rug and actually blamed the client for the harasser’s sexually charged conduct. As a result, of the client was terminated shortly after making the complaint. The company’s HR department claimed that she was terminated because of a reduction in force due to the pandemic, but the timing of her termination supports the conclusion that the employer retaliated against the client because she complained about sexual harassment. Termination of a healthcare employee in the midst of a healthcare crisis was evidence that her termination was pretextual. If you have experienced harassment in the workplace, you may be entitled to compensation. Call employment attorney Robert S. Norell for a free case evaluation.
