On June 24, 2013, SCOTUS handed employers a major victory that will curb the rising tide of RETALIATION claims and allow employers to manage performance without fear of them.   Just last year, the EEOC took in more retaliation charges than any other kind.  Before this recent SCOTUS decision, retaliation claims were easy (perhaps too easy), often just boiling down to the amount of TIME between a “protected activity” and an “adverse employment action.”  As Justice Kennedy observed, however, this lenient causation standard could prompt an employee to raise discrimination/harassment allegations in response to discipline or performance counseling as a perceived immunity from discharge; no doubt, discrimination and harassment allegations often stop employers in their performance management tracks.  This webinar will discuss the implications of SCOTUS’ Nassar decision on everyday personnel and performance management decisions, focusing on performance rehabilitation practices that get results and reduce employers’ legal risks.
