Revenge. It is at the heart of every retaliation claim and it is human nature, which makes it extremely hard to control. Research indicates there is a 57 percent chance of a jury deciding in favor of an employee when a retaliation claim is part of the case. Why? Because everyone on the jury can identify with that feeling of wanting revenge for a perceived wrong at work.

With the #MeToo movement making workplace complaints commonplace, the current climate is ripe for an even further increase in retaliation claims. Do not be caught off guard; join us for a review of this developing area of the law. Questions to be discussed include:

  • Did you know former employees and even relatives of employees can sue for retaliation?
  • Did you know the Supreme Court has expanded the definition of retaliation to include ever more subtle conduct?
  • Should you have a separate retaliation policy that applies to all types of claims and not just discrimination and harassment?
  • How do you manage the angry supervisor intent on seeking revenge for perceived false complaints by employees?
  • With "sue while you work" retaliation claims on the rise, how can you reduce legal risks when the employee turned plaintiff continues to work for your company?
