Retaliation and Age Discrimination to be Considered by High Court

Posted by Frank Steinberg | Jan 21, 2008 | 0 Comments

The US Supreme Court soon will hear two cases that involve important employment law issues.   The AP story appears here

The retaliation case, Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville, involves the question whether a witness in an internal investigation of a sexual harassment charge, who subsequently was fired (allegedly) for her participation as a witness, has a claim for retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.  The Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit said no.  The Bush Administration says yes.  The Court will decide.  Our guess (and at this stage it really is just an educated guess) is that Crawford will be allowed to attempt to prove her case. 

The age discrimination case is Meacham v. Atomic Knolls Power Lab.
