Abstract

This Article is a review of the Supreme Court's 2012-2013 labor and employment law decisions. Among the cases discussed are University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center v. Nassar, Vance v. Ball State University, US Airways, Inc. v. McCutchen, Kloeckner v. Solis, Genesis Healthcare Corp. v. Symczyk, and American Express Co. v. Italian Colors Restaurant. The Article argues that many of these cases represent the continuation of previous themes for the Supreme Court, such as erecting barriers to plaintiffs' ability to bring Title VII claims, reducing employer liability for workplace harassment, and making it more difficult for employees to bring collective claims and judicial actions against their employers.

Keywords: Title VII, ERISA, arbitration, harassment
