Former employees of Sacramento-based Sutter Health have filed discrimination complaints with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) accusing their supervisor, Rosetta Li, of harassment and creating a hostile work environment. Allegations include racial discrimination, racial bias, verbal abuse, and having to endure a culture of fear and intimidation.
Employees that complained to Sutter Health’s human resources were allegedly subjected to further harassment and a hostile work environment. They reported being berated by coworkers and they claim that Rosetta Li subjected them to demeaning and racially insensitive comments. These employees allege that they were often told to either quit or face termination.
The complainants allege that Rosetta Li has bullied employees in an intimidating and demeaning manner in the more than 15 years that she has worked for Sutter Health.
