High court expands retaliation rights of action, upholds state appointment rule

The U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that federal employees can bring retaliation claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, that employees can bring a retaliation claim under the Civil Right Act of 1866, now known as §1981, and that the governor of Alabama has the right to fill vacancies on the county commissions.

The opinions in Gomez-Perez v. Potter, CBOCS West v. Humphries, and Riley v. Kennedy can be found on the Court’s website.
