Retaliation claims just got harder to bring in Southeastern, Connecticut.

The Supreme Court issued a decision this summer that makes retaliation claims harder to bring in employment cases.  Essentially, the Court has increased the standard of proof in a Title VII claims to require proof that the retaliation was the "but for" cause of the harm.  The prior standard was a standard that allowed the plaintiff to win as long as the retaliation was "part of" the cause of the harm.  This decision is bad news for employees.  

If you or anyone you know believes you are being retaliated against by your employer contact the employment lawyers at The Bartinik Law Firm, PC., 100 Fort Hill Road, Groton, CT. at 860-445-8521 or toll free at 888-717-4211.
