Beginning with the decision in Burlington Northern v. White, through the Crawford case of 2010, and now in Thompson, the U.S. Supreme Court continues to expand the horizons of retaliation claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Employers are well-advised to understand the reach of these decisions, and be proactive in training management concerning the "best practices" to use in the evaluation, remediation, and documentation of employee performance, in order to avoid the perception of retaliation. Such training, coupled with a fair and comprehensive internal investigation process, is critical to the success of an enterprise in reducing its exposure to retaliation claims.
