In this episode of S&C’s Critical Insights, Litigation partners Judd Littleton and Julia Malkina are joined by Julie Jordan and Annie Ostrager, co-heads of the Firm’s Labor and Employment Group, in a continuation of S&C’s Supreme Court Business Review podcast series.
Julie and Annie discuss two recent employment law developments at the Supreme Court. First, they review the much-awaited decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia, a case holding that Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Next, they explore Comcast v. National Association of African American-Owned Media, a decision determining the causation standard for race discrimination claims under Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866. Julie and Annie share their insights on the implications of these decisions for businesses and employment law practitioners.
