Doc can pursue hostile work environment, not anti-trust

Friday, September 05, 2014

An Illinois doctor whose clinical privileges were revoked may pursue hostile work environment claims against the hospital, but cannot pursue antitrust claims because there was not an antitrust violation, reports Jackson Lewis PC.

The hostile work environment allegations arise from a physician from a competing provider who allegedly harassed her at the hospital due to her ethnicity, gender and religion. 

The court rejected the hospital’s argument that it was shielded from liability under Illinois law. The court also said that while it found no evidence the plaintiff was specifically harassed in a way that was anti-woman, anti-Semitic or anti-Russian, there was evidence to pursue her claim of a hostile work environment.
