As the United States Supreme Court’s 2012-2013 term drew to a close at the end of June, commentators observed a continuing gradual but perceptible shift to the right by the Court. The Roberts Court is generally viewed as pro-business, and its employment-related decisions issued this term did nothing to alter that perception. Indeed, nearly every major Court ruling addressing employment-related issues this term was favorable to employers in at least some respect. The 11 employment-related decisions issued by the Court this term included the following:

- One Title VII harassment case (Vance)

- One Title VII retaliation case (Nassar)

- Two civil rights cases (Windsor and Fisher)

- Two class action cases (Genesis and Comcast)

- Three arbitration cases (American Express, Oxford, and Nitro-Lift)

- One ERISA case (McCutchen)

- One federal employee case (Kloeckner)
