Chicago’s Jackson Park Hospital faces bias, retaliation charges

by on

The EEOC is suing Jackson Park Hos­pital and Medical Center for race dis­crimination and retaliation, alleging that the South Side Chicago institution condones race bias and retaliated against workers who complained about discrimination.

According to the EEOC’s complaint, the hospital assigns black, female medical technicians to tasks that other technicians are not required to perform. The lawsuit alleges the hospital hands out job assignments based on race and effectively segregates black women who work as technicians. The complaint also claims that a woman was demoted after she complained about the discrimination.

Note: Sometimes supervisors as­­sign tasks out of habit without realizing they may be discriminating. One way to avoid that is to establish a rotation policy that has everyone in a class of employees performing all job tasks. In addition to preventing discrimination, the practice familiarizes all employees with the entire work process.
