Supreme Court: law bars sex harassment retaliation


Supreme Court: law bars sex harassment retaliation (Reuters).

WASHINGTON (Reuters) โ€“ An employee is protected from being fired in retaliation for answering questions during an employer’s investigation of suspected sexual harassment, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday.

The unanimous court ruled the federal civil rights law’s anti-retaliation provision for employees who report workplace sex or race discrimination also extended to an internal investigation of a supervisor or another worker.

opinion.
