Supreme Court Rules on Retaliation against a Worker’s Family Members or other Close Associates

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled,  in a unanimous opinion written by Justice Antonin Scalia, that the fiancé of an employee who had filed a gender discrimination charge against their mutual employer was protected by the anti-retaliation provision of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Supreme Court held that Title VII’s ban on workplace retaliation against an employee who challenges discrimination also protects a co-worker who is a relative or close associate of the targeted employee.
