Former CEO of Aurora Pavilion Claims UHS Fired Her Because of Disability -- She Had Recovered From Being Hit By Car

Plaintiff, former CEO of Aurora Pavillion Behavioral Health Services, was terminated from the position on June 16, 2011. On Aug. 30, 2010, Plaintiff was hit by a car while jogging, which caused severe injuries. Plaintiff received numerous medical treatments and was eventually cleared to work as CEO with the accommodation of reduced hours for her first week back. Plaintiff claims that UHS believed she would never be able to perform her job functions and engaged in criticism of her job performance for the first time ever. On June 16, 2011, Plaintiff alleges she was called into a meeting with UHS Regional Vice President who suggested she resign and that he thought she was a “bad fit” for the company, responding to a question about other opportunities by saying “I will say you are a bad fit now.”

This case is ongoing as of April 4, 2016.
