BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Lehigh Valley Health Network is on the receiving end of a lawsuit.
The hospital is being sued over alleged age discrimination.
The suit was filed by several former housekeeping employees who worked at the LVH- Muhlenberg campus.
They say back in 2012 the health network laid off entire housekeeping departments at three campuses.
The lawsuit claims the employees who were laid-off at two of those sites were given the option to transfer but the Muhlenberg employees-- because of their ages- were not given that option until after they complained.
Officials with the health network tell us they disagree with the allegations and will defend themselves.
