These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

Retaliations claims are commonplace in employment litigation and on the rise. Whether alleged as a standalone claim or when a substantive claim of harassment or discrimination fails, employers frequently confront claims of retaliation. But the scope of an employee’s protected conduct – whistleblower activity, requests for accommodation, and many other forms of activity – is not limitless. There are also complicated questions of what exactly constitutes an adverse action by an employer and the causal connection between the employee’s protected activity and the adverse action. This program will provide you with a practical review of recent case law and other developments impacting each of the elements of an actionable retaliation claim and best practices to avoid liability.

  • Review of case law developments impacting elements of retaliation claims – protected conduct, adverse action, and causation
  • Developments related to the scope of “protected conduct,” including requests for reasonable accommodation
  • Determining what constitutes adverse action by the employer – and when action must be taken
  • Knowledge standards for establishing causal link between protected conduct and adverse action
  • Relationship of harassment, discrimination and ADA claims to retaliation claim
