The California Nurses Association is dragging a San Francisco hospital to court alleging that the hospital indulged in a discriminating act as managers refused to employ Filipino nurses.
The lawsuit was filed on Thursday against Sacramento-based Sutter Health and the firm’s California Pacific Medical Center.
Filipino campaigners and Union leaders in the Bay Area as well desire that San Francisco Human Rights Commission probes into the discrimination matter.
Three ex-managers at California Pacific Medical Center said that supervisors informed them to not employ Filipino nurses between the years 2007 and 2009.
The union is of the stance that the proportion of Filipino nurses at the hospital saw a drop from 65% to 10% in the year 2008.
The California Nurses Association is going in for filing a suit against California Pacific Medical Center and Sutter Health for being allegedly involved in discriminatory practices while hiring and not employing Filipina nurses.
CEO of CPMC, Dr. Warren Browner said that the group was proud of its diverse hiring policies. Also, he said that the lawsuit was deceitful and had no merit.
The association also is demanding that the hospital acknowledges the so-called discriminatory actions and also pledge to remain devoted to offering equal prospect.
