Protection For Workers Standing Up For Co-Employees

Protection For Workers Standing Up For Co-Employees

The US Supreme Court has ruled that the federal civil rights laws that protect employees from unlawful discrimination also protect co-workers who face retaliation for standing up for a co-worker who has been subjected to discrimination.  In the specific case, a Cracker Barrel manager claimed that he was fired in retaliation for complaining that a fellow employee was terminated because she was black.  The Court found that he had a viable legal claim under the federal anti-discrimination laws.  This is a significant decision for it provides legal protection for workers who see, report and complain of discrimination occuring to co-workers in the workplace.
