Nurse Suing Hospital For $1 Million In Sexual Harassment Lawsuit
Jessica Shell a Monroe County nurse is suing her former employer, Sweetwater Hospital for $1 million after she was allegedly sexually harrassed. Shell worked at Sweetwater Hospital in 2007 and according to her lawsuit more than one male co-worker made sexual advances and comments toward her. She is also alleging the CEO of the Sweetwater Hospital Association Scott Bowman sexually harassed her.
Shell alleges she complained of the sexual harassment to the hospital but they failed to stop the sexual harrassment. Shell also alleges she was fired after reporting the accusations which is retaliation. This case is shaping up to be a very explosive case with allegations involving the CEO. I believe that due to the current job market, many executives believe they can behave in any fashion they choose and the employee has to take it or leave.
