9781567063769: Employment Relationships: Law & Practice

Employment Relationships: Law & Practice analyzes the state and federal employment laws and recent trends in case law affecting the employment relationship. Topics covered include: federal discrimination law, including ADEA, ADA, the Equal Pay Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act; sexual harassment, with a discussion of same-sex harassment; severance pay, golden parachutes and COBRA; employee's fiduciary duties to his employer; employee privacy, with discussions of privacy issues relating to employee e-mail and computer files; tort actions, such as defamation, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing and infliction of emotional distress. Practice pointers throughout the chapter provide practical advice from the authors.

Employment Relationships has been updated to include:

  • Discussion of the United States Supreme Court's decision in Crawford v. Metropolitan Gov. of Nashville and Davison County, Tennessee, which addressed the question of whether the prohibition in Title VII on retaliation by employers against employees who report workplace discrimination extends to an employee who speaks out about discrimination when questioned about harassment of others in an employer's investigation
  • Coverage of the United States Supreme Court's decision in Gross v. FBL Financial Services, Inc., which addressed the question of whether the ADEA permits a claim under a "mixed motives" theory
  • Analysis of the United States Supreme Court's decision in Ricci v. DeStefano, which addressed the question of when intentionally race based action by an employer is permissible under Title VII to avoid liability under an unintentional discrimination disparate-impact theory
  • Discussion of the Rhode Island Supreme Court decision in New England Stone, LLC v. Conte that Rhode Island courts, in determining whether the employer had just or good cause to terminate an at will employee, should not create additional and implied terms to govern the employee's termination for cause
  • Analysis of Vendetti v. Compass Environmental, Inc., in which the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals addressed, apparently in a case of first impression among published opinions, the definitions of "location" and "no relocation" clauses in employment contracts, noting that there is a difference between requiring an employee to move to another location for work and requiring an employee to periodically travel to another office of the employer
  • Discussion of special problems in the scope of "because of" a protected characteristic under the federal antidiscrimination statutes
  • Discussion of special problems in "mixed motives" cases
