Indiana University Health sued for age and sex discrimination

A former nurse has filed an age and sex discrimination lawsuit against Indiana University Health (formerly known as Clarian Health).

Terri Smith, who worked at Indiana University Health from February 2000 until September 2012, claims that she was fired because of her age and/or sex and/or in retaliation “for engagement in protected conduct.”

According to the complaint, one week before Smith was fired, she “refused to participate in and opposed certain measures of Defendant which would jeopardize patient safety.”

Smith claims that her reporting of and refusal to participate in these measures “constitutes protected activity” and that she “was obligated and required to oppose and speak out about such conduct.”

Indiana University Health, which includes more than 20 hospitals and health centers, is Indiana’s most comprehensive healthcare system.

    iu health is definitly discriminatory. they are now giving their workers 3 times the safe limit of work that was considered safe just 2 years ago. their older workers are set up to fail and are watched like hawks to find mistakes or to make their lives miserable. they are obviously clearing the decks.
