Iowa hospital close to finalizing $2M bias lawsuit
WATERLOO (AP) — A Waterloo hospital is close to finalizing a $2 million class-action lawsuit that compensates African-Americans who say they were denied jobs and promotions because of their race.
Allen Hospital will pay 35 individuals a total of about $1 million under the settlement made public more than a year ago. But a claims process involving 69 people needed to be completed before the settlement could become finalized.
The settlement will include $667,000 for attorney fees and about $10,000 for administrative expenses. The rest will be used for nonprofit organizations that primarily serve African Americans in Waterloo.
