McCall v. Board of Com'rs of County of Shawnee, KS.

U.S. District Court

DISABILITY

HOSTILE WORK ENVIRONMENT

McCall v. Board of Com'rs of County of Shawnee, KS, 291 F.Supp.2d 1216 (D.Kan. 2003). A female former county corrections officer brought an employment discrimination action in state court, alleging violations of Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation act. The case was removed to federal district court, where the county defendants were granted summary judgment. The former officer had complained of various forms of harassment directed at her during her employment but made no allegations concerning harassment involving others. The court held that the former officer was not subjected to a sexually hostile work environment, where her allegations were not gender-based. The court held that the county board of commissioners' refusal to honor a doctor's order that she not work more than eight hours a day, and her retroactive termination, were not sufficiently pervasive or severe to alter the terms, conditions, or privileges of her employment.
