Gay Male Worker's Harassment, Retaliation Claims Reinstated

Ogletree Deakins • February 08, 2011
A federal appellate court recently reinstated a lawsuit brought by an employee who claimed that he was subjected to unlawful harassment based on his sexual orientation and fired in retaliation for reporting the misconduct.

Furthermore, the court found that the "temporal proximity" between the worker's complaints and his discharge justified allowing the worker to proceed on his retaliation claim. Dawson v.
