On March 1st, the Supreme Court of the United States made a decision that allows employers to be liable for discrimination based on the bias of an employee’s supervisors, even though the supervisors did not make the actual decision to terminate the employee. The decision in Staub v. Proctor Hospital, is being described by many as the most important employment law decision of the last decade.
Joining us today to talk about this decision, and what it means for employers, is Timothy Eavenson. Mr. Eavenson is an attorney in the Labor and Employment Practice Group of SmithAmundsen. He regularly counsels employers on discrimination, wage and hour, and other HR-related issues, and he represents businesses in employment disputes throughout the country. Mr. Eavensen is also the author of the blog, Current Employment, where he writes about issues relating to the workplace and the law.
