Recent Developments in Employment Law From the Supreme Court By L. Kay Wilson, Esq. August 15, 2013

L. Kay Wilson

U. of Texas Southwestern Medical Center v. Nassar, 133 S.Ct. 2517 (June 24, 2013)

A very recent Supreme Court decision on June 24, 2013, makes it much easier for employers to defend claims of retaliation under Title VII. According to the decision in Nassar, “. . .Title VII retaliation claims require proof that the desire to retaliate was the but-for cause of the challenged employment action.” Nassar, 133 S.Ct. at 2528.

This means that employers who are able to prove legitimate, non-retaliatory reasons for the challenged employment action (including termination) will prevail.
