Supreme Court to Hear Title VII "Adverse Employment Action" Case

Just in from SCOTUSblog:

"The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to spell out the kind of proof a worker needs to show that he or she suffered an 'adverse employment action' that would amount to discrimination based on race, sex or religion. The issue, dividing the lower courts into at least three camps, arises in Burlington Northern v. White (05-529). The Court declined to hear another issue in that case: the proof needed to gain punitive damages in a Title VII case."

Update: Ross Runkel has a great analysis of the case in the Sixth Circuit at his employment blog.
