Humana racial discrimination suit reinstated

Humana is facing a class action racial discrimination case brought by a former employee, reported Workforce Management. In the lawsuit, Kathryn Keys, who is African-American, claimed that Humana diminished her role and responsibilities after two reorganizations. Humana terminated Keys' employment in June 2008, citing a 2006 negative performance assessment. A district court initially dismissed the suit, concluding that Keys failed to establish a clear case of racial discrimination.

The case now has been remanded back to district court. Article
