Articles Discussing Case:

Insubordinate Worker Did Not Meet Employer's Legitimate Expectations.

Ogletree Deakins • June 15, 2010
A federal appellate court recently found that an employee who was fired for insubordination was not meeting an employer's legitimate business expectations after she engaged in arguments with her co-workers, the general manager, and the owner of the business. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals further found that the insubordination was a non-discriminatory reason that overcame the employee's claim that her termination was a "pretext" for discrimination.
