Retaliation under the employment discrimination laws is one of the most rapidly developing areas. Most of the recent major decisions have been in favor of the employees. The US Supreme Court in Crawford v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, 129 U.S. 846 (2009) ruled that employees that responded to an employer's questions about sexual harassment qualify for protection under Title VII's "opposition" clause.In effect, the employee need not initiate a complaint in order to be protected, and the employee need not express the opposition with any degree of frequency.
