    Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
    what may or may not constitute sexual harassment in the workplace can be a tricky subject.  The Connecticut Superior Court ruled on a specific provision of Connecticut’s sexual harassment law, specifically, the provision defining sexual harassment as “any conduct of a sexual nature” when “submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment.”

    Retaliation Claim Under Title VII Denied, Employer Had Legitimate Reasons for Pay Decrease
    in a U.S. District Court case, a female employee’s claim of retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act was dismissed because the employer provided legitimate, nondiscriminatory justification for its adverse employment action.[1] The female employee brought action against her employer, alleging unlawful discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964[2] and the equivalent state discrimination law[3]. Specifically, plaintiff alleges she suffered unlawful discrimination, based upon her sex, alleging she was subjected to a hostile work environment and suffered retaliation for complaining about the same.[4]
    Use of Word “Bitch” Does Not Automatically Imply Gender-Based Hostility
    a work environment is considered “hostile” if a reasonable person would have found it so and if the plaintiff subjectively so perceived it.  Outrageous conduct and egregious acts that are severe or pervasive automatically command an inference of gender-based hostility.  In the workplace of today, crude or degrading epithets, while hardly the rule, are certainly not the exception.  One such word—“bitch”—has seemingly found a place of its own in some people’s daily vocabulary.  The question arises as to whether constant use of that word in relation to a female employee is sex-based and reflects hostility toward women.  The short answer is it can, but doesn’t necessarily have to.

    Five Things that Make a Connecticut Non-Compete Enforceable
    the Fairfield County employment lawyers here at Maya Murphy, P.C., have advised numerous residents of Greenwich, New Canaan, Stamford, Darien, and Westport about the enforceability of non-competition provisions contained in Employment Agreements or Separation Agreements.  While every case, and the wording of every agreement, is different, there are five “constants” that Connecticut courts look to in deciding whether or not to enforce a non-competition clause.  They are the starting point for any discussion or individual analysis of whether a particular non-compete may be enforceable as to you. Again, every case turns upon its own peculiar facts. The key concepts are:

    Mediating a Sexual Harassment Claim
    statistically, the overwhelming majority of sexual harassment cases are resolved prior to trial by “alternate dispute resolution” in the form of mediation or arbitration.  These proceedings (mediation in particular) are more informal than a courtroom trial, but you still need a zealous and experienced advocate on your side.
