Claims of Harassment, Discrimination and Retaliation Against Employer Dismissed
A manufacturer faced a federal lawsuit from a former employee alleging she was discriminated against, harassed and subjected to unlawful retaliation by her former supervisor and others at the company in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended.
Our attorneys represented the manufacturer and filed a motion to dismiss the Complaint arguing the allegations as pled did not constitute actionable conduct under Title VII, and that the plaintiff failed to engage in protected activity to support a retaliation claim as a matter of law.
The U.S. District Court agreed with the manufacturer and granted the motion, dismissing each of the plaintiff employee’s claims on the merits. The Court also denied the employee’s motion to amend her complaint, calling the proposed amendment “futile.”
