(09/27/13) - Months after settling a discrimination lawsuit with a black nurse, Hurley Medical Center announced Friday it has settled a race discrimination case with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Last November, veteran nurse Tonya Battle accused Hurley of honoring a Caucasian father's request that no African Americans care for his child, who was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Battle won her case and was paid $110,000.
Two other black women who worked in the NICU also sued and won.
As for the settlement with the EEOC, Hurley will have to work with the agency to provide community youth programs.
Hurley's management staff will also have to go through non-discrimination training.
