Easy Pickins For The EEOC – Again
I’m getting tired of repeatedly blogging that health care and medical providers are at serious risk of EEOC enforcement actions for alleged violations of the disability pregnancy discrimination laws because they are easy pickins.
Or like shooting fish in a barrel.
As I have blogged … maybe a gazillion times … such employers are “low hanging fruit” because the EEOC can force an early settlement simply by pointing out to the world at large that people in the “caring” professions are not that caring to their own employees.
Not good PR.
Well, here’s another such case.
A Santa Fe hospital recently agreed to settle an EEOC case for $98,000 in which the EEOC alleged that a hospital supervisor subjected a deaf employee to a hostile work environment and allegedly fired her because of her disability.
Not a good look, you must agree.
