The Proper Role Of After-Acquired Evidence In Employment Discrimination Litigation, Rebecca White, Robert D. Brussack

Scholarly Works

A new defense to employment discrimination claims has gained acceptance in the lower courts. Employers who allegedly have discriminated against their employees because of race, sex or age are winning judgments on the basis of after-acquired evidence of employee misconduct. The evidence is “after-acquired” in the sense that the misconduct was unknown to the employer at the time the alleged discrimination occurred but was acquired later, often through the use of discovery devices in the employee's discrimination action. Lower courts have accepted the proposition that if the employer would have discharged the plaintiff on the basis of the after-acquired evidence, …


Tempering Title Vii's Straight Arrow Approach: Recognizing And Protecting Gay Victims Of Employment Discrimination, Marie E. Peluso Nov 1993

Tempering Title Vii's Straight Arrow Approach: Recognizing And Protecting Gay Victims Of Employment Discrimination, Marie E. Peluso

Vanderbilt Law Review

Consider the following scenario: Jerry, an outstanding graduate of Superior University's business school, has worked for Moneytree & Cashdollar, a prestigious investment banking firm, for three years. In that period, Jerry's hard work and keen instincts helped increase Moneytree's revenues by several million dollars. In addition, Jerry received two awards for landing important new clients. The firm's managing partners have discussed promoting Jerry to junior vice president, an executive position typically reserved for qualified fifth year employees. Jerry's supervisors and peers enthusiastically commend his dedication and skill. Two weeks before the vote on his promotion, Jerry lured a particularly valuable …


Labor Law Successorship: A Corporate Law Approach, Edward B. Rock, Michael L. Wachter Nov 1993

Labor Law Successorship: A Corporate Law Approach, Edward B. Rock, Michael L. Wachter

Michigan Law Review

In this article, we take an approach fundamentally different from that of the labor law commentators. We start from a broader perspective than is common: successorship is as important an issue for corporate law as it is for labor law. Given that the two principal inputs to the firm are labor and capital, it would be surprising if the laws for labor law successorship were completely different from the laws for corporate law successorship. To the extent that differences exist, those differences should hinge upon differences between the employees' and the creditors' relationships with the firm.

Life-Cycle Justice: Accommodating Just Cause And Employment At Will, Stuart J. Schwab Oct 1993

Life-Cycle Justice: Accommodating Just Cause And Employment At Will, Stuart J. Schwab

Michigan Law Review

The goal of this article is to articulate a coherent framework for understanding the default rules for employment termination. While most observers see chaos here, I find a certain logic in the leading cases. The courts have been boldest when job protection is most appropriate, and they have hesitated precisely when at will plays its most useful role.

Age-Based Incentives, Coercion, And The Prospective Waiver Of Adea Rights: The Failure Of The Older Workers' Benefit Protection Act, Michael C. Harper

Faculty Scholarship

The theses of this Article shall be developed in the following manner. Part I shall explain how conditional age-based exit incentive windows can be used by employers to achieve indirectly what the ADEA clearly prohibits when accomplished directly: the removal from employment of a group of employees chosen, at least in part, on the basis of their age. This Part further explains how this removal is accomplished by effectively inducing employees to waive prospectively their future ADEA protection. Part II analyzes the treatment of age-based conditional exit incentives by the courts before the passage of the OWBPA, stressing that the …

Complete Justice: Upholding The Principles Of Title Vii Through Appropriate Treatment Of After-Acquired Evidence, Jennifer Miyoko Follette Jul 1993

Complete Justice: Upholding The Principles Of Title Vii Through Appropriate Treatment Of After-Acquired Evidence, Jennifer Miyoko Follette

Washington Law Review

Congress enacted Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to combat employment discrimination and to provide relief to discrimination victims. The 1972 and 1991 amendments strengthened the statute and delineated a clear congressional commitment to the statute's purposes. In most cases the courts have utilized the statutes remedial provisions to deter further discriminatory conduct and to provide relief to victims. However, the majority of federal circuit courts which have addressed the issue deny a remedy to plaintiffs in cases where an employer discovers evidence of an employee's misrepresentations on a resume or evidence of misconduct on the job after …


Statistical Proof Of Discrimination: Beyond "Damned Lies", Kingsley R. Browne Jul 1993

Statistical Proof Of Discrimination: Beyond "Damned Lies", Kingsley R. Browne

Washington Law Review

Evidence that an employer's work force contains fewer minorities or women than would be expected if selection were random with respect to race and sex has been taken as powerful—and often sufficient—evidence of systematic intentional discrimination. In relying on this kind of statistical evidence, courts have made two fundamental errors. The first error is assuming that statistical analysis can reveal the probability that observed work-force disparities were produced by chance. This error leads courts to exclude chance as a cause when such a conclusion is unwarranted. The second error is assuming that, except for random deviations, the work force of …

Employment Discrimination, Peter Reed Corbin, John E. Duvall Jul 1993

Employment Discrimination, Peter Reed Corbin, John E. Duvall

Mercer Law Review

The significant developments during the 1992 survey period in the area of employment discrimination related more closely to statutory changes than to decisions handed down either by the United States Supreme Court or the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Of course 1992 will long be remembered as the year that ushered in the much publicized Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"), an act that will no doubt become known as the most far-reaching employment legislation of the 1990s. Although no ADA cases have, as yet, progressed to the Eleventh Circuit level, many administrative charges already have been …

More specifically, the cases addressed in this Article include noteworthy decisions under the National Labor Relations Act ("NLRA"), the Labor Management Relations Act ("LMRA"), the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 ("FLSA"), the Occupational Safety and Hazard Act ("OSHA"), and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA").

Wallace V. Dunn Construction Co.: Defining The Role Of After-Acquired Evidence In Federal Employment Discrimination Suits, Hugh Lawson Iii Jul 1993

Wallace V. Dunn Construction Co.: Defining The Role Of After-Acquired Evidence In Federal Employment Discrimination Suits, Hugh Lawson Iii

Mercer Law Review

In Wallace v. Dunn Construction Co. the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals faced an issue of first impression in the circuit: the role of after-acquired evidence in actions arising under federal employment discrimination statutes, namely Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Equal Pay Act. The court held that after-acquired evidence cases in which an employer discovers evidence constituting a permissible reason for discharging an employee after that employee has already been discharged for an impermissible reason are distinguishable from mixed-motive cases in which an employer discharges an employee for several reasons, some permissible and …


Thailand's State Enterprise Labor Relations Act: Denying Public Employees The Right Of Association And The Right To Organize And Bargain Collectively, Kelly A. Doelman Jun 1993

Thailand's State Enterprise Labor Relations Act: Denying Public Employees The Right Of Association And The Right To Organize And Bargain Collectively, Kelly A. Doelman

Washington International Law Journal

On April 15, 1991, Thailand's new legislative body enacted the State Enterprise Labor Relations Act, removing public employees from the dominion of the Labor Relations Act and dissolving the existing public labor unions. This Act has had a crippling effect on the entire Thai labor movement, which historically relied on the leadership and influence of public unions to promote private industry worker interests. This Comment argues that the State Enterprise Labor Relations Act contains many provisions which violate internationally accepted labor standards, specifically the right of association and the right to organize and bargain collectively. This Comment further asserts that …

Understanding Mixed Motives Claims Under The Civil Rights Act Of 1991: An Analysis Of Intentional Discrimination Claims Based On Sex-Stereotyped Interview Questions, Heather K. Gerken Jun 1993

Understanding Mixed Motives Claims Under The Civil Rights Act Of 1991: An Analysis Of Intentional Discrimination Claims Based On Sex-Stereotyped Interview Questions, Heather K. Gerken

Michigan Law Review

This Note analyzes the Civil Rights Act of 1991 and relevant case law to determine whether posing sex-stereotyped interview questions is actionable conduct under Title VII. It questions whether proof of discrimination during a phase in the hiring process, specifically during the interview stage, supports a Title VII claim without other independent evidence that the hiring decision was discriminatory. Part I explains that the circuit courts have envisioned the impact of discrimination during the hiring process differently and, as a result, are divided in determining whether sex-stereotyped interview questions are actionable under Title VII. Part II examines the legislative history …
