Lion-Killing Dentist Faced Sexual Harassment Claim
Walter Palmer settled a sexual harassment claim in 2009 for $127,500.
Palmer is accused of sexually harassing a receptionist, who was also his patient, between July of 1999 and January of 2005. The woman “was subjected to verbal comments and physical conduct involving her breasts, buttocks, and genitalia.”
The woman informed her supervisor and Palmer that she wanted it to stop, but it didn’t, and she alleges she was fired for reporting the harassment, according to the document. Palmer paid out the settlement without admitting to the allegations.
Aside from agreeing to pay $127,500, Palmer had to undergo “at least three hours” of sexual harassment training and provide the woman a signed letter of recommendation for future prospective employers.
