Supreme Court Expands Title VII to Prohibit Third Party Retaliation

Yesterday, the United States Supreme Court ruled that an employee may sue for retaliation where his employer took an adverse action against him in retaliation for his fiancee’s complaint of discrimination.  This decision provides much needed protection to the friends, family members, and loved ones of an individual who complains at work of unlawful discrimination.  Prior to this decision, an employer was able to harass or terminate a family member in retaliation for another employee’s protected activity with impunity.  This decision outlines when third party retaliation is prohibited and should fix that!
