NY ACCA Program Will ExamineRetaliation Developments

Friday, June 1, 2007 - 01:00

The Greater New York Chapter of the Association of Corporate Counsel America (NY ACCA) is planning a CLE seminar titled Burlington Northern v. White: Has the Supreme Court's 2006 Ruling Fundamentally Changed the Landscape for Protecting Your Organization From Retaliation Claims?

The program will take place on Wednesday, June 13 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. at Club 101, 101 Park Avenue, New York City.

In 2006, the Supreme Court clarified the standard for actionable retaliatory conduct under Title VII. The plaintiffs' bar publicized the court's decision as imposing significant restrictions on employers. This program will discuss the Court's holding and the first year of case law applying the new standard for the purposes of analyzing whether in practice the court's decision has expanded employee rights. Panelists also will discuss whether courts have applied this standard to claims of retaliation under other statutes such as the FMLA and the ADEA.

Speakers for the seminar are still to be announced.

There is no registration fee for the program. For details on CLE credits, see the Bulletin Board on The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel website at www.metrocorpcounsel.com.
