A former employee for Siemens is claiming that she lost her job because she spoke out about issues she had with the company's medical records system. She alleges that she lost her job after voicing her concerns at the West Virginia facility. At the time of her report, Siemens was apparently being investigated for fraudulently obtaining contracts. The plaintiff threatened to take legal action against the company for being fired unjustly but was given her job back seven months later.
Although her complaint with the company had been settled, it was not the end. As part of her settlement, she was to be reinstated for two years. Once that period had ended, the plaintiff alleges she was subjected to an uncomfortable work environment. She claims she was subjected to physical injury as well as intentionally inflicted duress, which forced her to quit her job.
