Hospital Obtains Final Arbitration Award Rejecting Harassment and Retaliation Claims

Lash & Goldberg LLP  obtained a final arbitration award rejecting an employee’s complaint asserting sexual harassment and retaliation against her hospital employer. The employee alleged that she was sexually harassed by a physician and then retaliated against for making a complaint about the harassment.  After a final evidentiary hearing, the arbitrator agreed with Lash & Goldberg LLP 's argument that the facts did not support the employee’s claims, finding that she had not been subject to any adverse employment action and that, moreover, the hospital had legitimate non-discriminatory reasons for all of its personnel decisions.  The arbitrator entered a final award in favor of the hospital, which was confirmed in court.
