Alex Long (Tennessee) and Sandra Sperino (Cincinnati) has just had their essay, "Diminishing Retaliation Liability" published in the NYU Law Review Online. The essay's introduction:
Over the past decade, courts have often construed statutory provisions relating to workplace retaliation liberally, interpreting them to provide protections for employees who complained about discrimination against themselves or others. However, a recent decision by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals demonstrates that courts may begin to scale back the gains made by employees in retaliation cases by applying agency principles to limit employer liability for retaliation.
An interesting topic from two folks who know their retaliation law, so check it out.
