A Western Pennsylvania cardiology practice has agreed to settle EEOC sexual harassment charges alleging that its doctors routinely made sexually offensive and debasing comments to women who worked there.
Donahue Cardiology in Washington will pay $125,000 to three current and former nurses. One, a registered nurse, initially complained to the practice’s partners. When two other women complained too, the doctors fired the nurse.
All three complained to the EEOC. When investigators determined the women had a solid case, the practice agreed to settle instead of having to explain the doctors’ behavior to a jury.
In addition to paying the women, the practice agreed to actively monitor the workplace for harassment. If complaints arise during the next 3½ years, it must hire an independent HR professional to investigate and report the results to the EEOC.
