White Employee Sues Pinay Supervisor of California Hospital for ‘Racial Discrimination’
A white employee at Seton Medical Center is suing after she lost her job because the hospital and a Filipina supervisor allegedly engaged in racial discrimination.
Pauline Henderson filed a suit against Seton in San Mateo County Superior Court on Jan. 30. She also alleged retaliation and wrongful termination.
Henderson worked at Seton for more than 20 years and served as a lead financial advisor at the time she was laid off in April 2011, the suit said.
In the latter part of 2010, the suit said, she began reporting to Mary Esteban, who had become the director of patient access and is of Filipino descent.
Soon thereafter, Henderson said she felt she was being harassed by agents of a firm contracted by Seton to help with the hospital’s financial operations, the suit said.
Henderson complained to Esteban and asked her to address the matter, the suit said, but the director allegedly refused. So Henderson filed a harassment complaint with Seton’s human resources.
In February 2011, the suit said, Henderson received notice that she was going to be laid off despite alleged reassurances from Esteban a year earlier that her job was safe.
