ARH Facing Lawsuit

Appalachian Regional Healthcare is now the target of a lawsuit filed by two former employees.

A lawyer representing Cynthia Boggs and Amber Tye, who both worked as recreational therapists at Hazard ARH, says the two were wrongfully terminated after bringing food and water to striking nurses. Attorney Cheryl Lewis says the women were non-union employees and dropped off the food and water at the Hazard ARH picket line during their afternoon lunch break on the first day of the strike. Later that day, Lewis says the two were suspended and later discharged.

ARH officials deny the wrongful termination claim, and declined to comment further.

A lawsuit represents only one side of a case.
