Corrections Corporation of America Settles Another Idaho Wrongful Termination Case

Corrections Corporation of America settled a lawsuit with a former nurse who alleges she was fired in retaliation for filing a sexual harassment complaint. Michelle Pierce began working at the CCA-run Idaho Correctional Center south of Boise in July 2012. As part of her job responsibilities, she was required to pass out medications to the inmates. As a safety measure, officers must accompany nurses when passing out medications to inmates. Pierce said she told her female supervisor she was having difficulty getting officers to accompany her. The supervisor recommended Pierce be more flirtatious with the officers and then they would do whatever she wanted, according to the complaint filed in federal court in February 2014. Pierce also claims she was subjected to numerous inappropriate sexual comments and advances.
