When an employee works for a company, they should be able to feel a sense of safety in their environment and trust in their superiors. If an employee is faced with a situation that makes them feel uncomfortable, being able to report such situations without fear of retaliation should be an expected privilege. However, there are some instances in which a worker may face wrongful termination after reporting harassment or other negative behaviors.
A former worker at a California hospital has recently filed a lawsuit claiming that she was retaliated against and unjustly fired from her position. She believes she was let go after she reported incidents of sexual harassment that she and other employees faced from an emergency room director. She claims that the doctor made inappropriate comments and had inappropriate contact with other female employees.
