In an age of increased scrutiny of workplace behavior, relations claims continue to rise. The rise in claims has been fostered, in part, by congressional legislation in Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley, which provide added legal protections for whistleblowers. Furthermore, the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Nassar has changed the standard of proof in retaliation claims involving underlying age discrimination. These and other many developments continue to buffet the course of retaliation claims. This program will provide you with a practical review of recent developments impacting retaliation claims, how these developments alter prior law or practice, and best practices to avoid liability.
