What counts as harassment? It depends on the state...


The law is a funny thing. Let’s say the exact same action is performed in two different states. In state one, that action results in a lawsuit, which leads to a trial, which leads to a settlement, and maybe even a full-blown scandal with all the attendant media coverage.

The label of what we employment lawyers call “employment law” encompasses so many aspects of the day-to-day lives of workers in America, it’s no surprise that week after week, we see news stories popping up across the country that directly touch on our area of the law. Here’s a roundup of some of the recent stories, both local and national, that are directly relevant to employees.

So, Who Gets Sued? Examining Liability for Employment Law Violations Up the Corporate Ladder


This month, the Court of Appeals, New York’s highest court, answered several questions “certified” to it by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals that are important for certain employees considering bringing a lawsuit against an employer to understand.

That’s a mouthful, so let’s unpack it before we go further, because this post is going to include a lot of legal speak: the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is a federal appellate court. It decides appeals from cases tried in federal district courts. The New York Court of Appeals, meanwhile, is the highest state court in New York, and it reviews decisions from state trial courts. So there is a two-tiered system of justice in which cases brought in federal court proceed federally, while cases brought in state court proceed in the state court system.

7th Circuit: LGBT Discrimination is Illegal Under the 1964 Civil Rights Act


Last week, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, a federal appellate court tasked with reviewing the decisions of district courts in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, dropped what can legitimately be called a legal bombshell. In Hively v. Ivy Tech Community College, the 7th Circuit became the first federal appeals court to find that under the Civil Rights Act (the 1964 law that barred private entities and businesses from discriminating on the basis of sex, race, religion, or national origin) discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals is also illegal.

AGE DISCRIMINATION: A Closer Look


Two months, two separate lawsuits: in late February, the second former employee in as many months launched a lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler America, the Michigan-based car manufacturer, alleging that its corporate headquarters engaged in systemic age discrimination, denying raises and promotions to older workers. One claim from the complaint: top executives viewed photographs of employees during performance evaluations, and said evaluations resulted in suspiciously low scores for over-55 workers, even those who had been glowing reviews by their immediate supervisors. This comes on the heels of a Read more . . .
