A South Hills company created a hostile work environment for a gay telemarketing employee who ultimately quit because he said his supervisor was harassing him, according to a federal lawsuit filed today by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Dale Baxley, the employee, was subjected to repeated taunts about being gay from his boss at Scott Medical Health Center in the summer of 2013, according to the suit.
The EEOC said Mr. Baxley complained to the president, but nothing changed. He quit in August 2013.
The suit is seeking damages for Mr. Baxley as well as an order that the company train its employees not to harass anyone.
