Kaiser Settles Sexual Harassment Case

     SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge dismissed a sexual harassment case against Kaiser Foundation Hospitals after the parties settled for an undisclosed sum.
     U.S. District Judge Thelton E. Henderson dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice.
     Felicia Id-Deen sued Kaiser Foundation Hospitals and Darin E. Green in March 2015.
     According to Id-Deen’s lawsuit, she was a contract employee and Kaiser was her “joint employer.” Green was her manager and a Kaiser employee, the lawsuit said.
     “Plaintiff was denied promotion because she rebuffed defendant Green’s advances and/or because she reported his harassment to defendant Kaiser,” the lawsuit said.
     “After she reported defendant Green’s harassment, defendant Kaiser retaliated against plaintiff by refusing to promote her, by overwhelming her with work, and by making her work environment as hostile as possible short of physical assault,” Id-Deen said in the suit.
     When Id-Deen did not resign, Kaiser terminated her contract, she claimed.
     Kaiser has 60 days to pay the undisclosed sum or the dismissal will be vacated and the case restored to the calendar, Henderson wrote in the dismissal order.
