Nurses in Cobb, County Georgia claim that they were told they were too ghetto to work with white patients, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution. The nurses are suing Accord Services stating that they discriminated against them when choosing who they sent to service white patients.
“Defendants intentionally discriminated against black applicants and employees, including both African Americans and Africans, in favor of Caucasian and Hispanic applicants and employees,” says the lawsuit, which is seeking monetary damages.
The company is sayin that these women are simply disgruntled workings trying to defame the name of the company.
“I read the allegation, and it is completely false,” administrator Freddy Allen told Channel 2 Action News. He noted that the company has black nurses who have worked for Accord Services for almost a decade.
