A federal jury has found Ogden Regional Medical Center guilty of retaliating against an employee who was fired following a racism complaint.
Records show that a U.S. District Court jury in Salt Lake City decided Aug. 2 that Raymond Zisumbo is entitled to $7,500 in compensatory damages.
Zisumbo’s attorney, April Hollingsworth, told the Standard-Examiner that she’ll seek $200,000 in back wages.
Jurors decided the hospital intentionally retaliated against the former computer tomography technician, but that the hospital wasn’t guilty of discrimination.
Zisumbo is Hispanic. He had a degree and five years of CT experience when began working at the hospital in 2004.
He served as interim department head before filing a discrimination complaint when he wasn’t promoted. He was fired the following month.
