Adverse Employment Actions: Are You at Risk for a Potential Retaliation Claim?

December 7, 2006

On December 7, 2006, The Employers Breakfast Briefing Series presented “Adverse Employment Actions: Are You at Risk for a Potential Retaliation Claim?” in response to concerns about the United States Supreme Court’s recent decision, Burlington Northern & Sante Fe Railway Co. v. White, which substantially broadened the scope of retaliation claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The decision, which can be viewed as a continued expansion of employee rights in the area, has created vast uncertainty as to what constitutes unlawful retaliation. Catherine P. Wells, a member of Wolff & Samson’s Employment Law Group, discussed the Court’s broad sweeping ruling, its impact upon employers and the various policies and procedures employers can implement to avoid or minimize the risk of workplace retaliation claims.
