White employee files reverse-discrimination lawsuit against Hurley Medical Center

“Reverse discrimination is a big problem in society,” said Flint-based attorney Glen Lenhoff, who is representing Hillaker. “White people often suffer discrimination.”

In the wake of a high-profile racial discrimination lawsuit filed by black nurses at Hurley Medical Center, a hospital employee is suing the hospital on claims that he is being discriminated against because he is white.

Mark Hillaker Jr., an environmental technician at Hurley, claims in a lawsuit filed March 12 in Genesee Circuit Court that his supervisor made derogatory remarks to him because of his race.

Hillaker, who works as an environmental technician at the hospital, claims that the remarks began in late 2007 and that he supervisor referred to him as “stupid white boy” and told other hospital employees, “Don’t do that, I will get my white boy to do it,” according to the lawsuit.

Hillaker claims he was also threatened with unjustified disciplined and physical violence by his supervisor, the lawsuit claims.

According to the lawsuit, Hillaker notified the hospital’s upper management of the treatment but his supervisor continued the alleged harassment.
